SAN ANTONIO – A new high school in the Northside Independent School District will relieve overcrowding at three other schools in far West Bexar County.

The new Harlan High School will pull about 1,600 students from Taft, O'Connor and Brennan high schools.

The school, which is under construction on FM 471 near Medina County, will house grades 9-11 in fall 2017.

Seniors in the new school zone will stay and graduate from their current high schools.

The Northside School Boundary Advisory Committee will host a public hearing May 5 at Taft High School to discuss the new school zones.

The committee will get input from the community and submit a recommendation to the school board.

Final approval for the zone is expected on May 24.

Eventually, Harlan High School will grow to about 2,800 students.
