New School Facilities Abound At Twelve Bridges

SLINCOLN, Calif -January 30, 2006- Families at Twelve Bridges, a master planned community in Lincoln, have no shortage of options when it comes to sending their kids to school. With an elementary school already in place, Twelve Bridge Middle School is set to open in August of this year and the highly anticipated Twelve Bridges High School is not far behind.

Winner of the 2004 CASH Award of Honor, Twelve Bridges Middle School is a 95,000 square foot facility that will accommodate approximately 1000 students. The campus will include several design features that reinforce the Western Placer Unified District's mission goals for Science, Culture, Environment and Technology. Set on an 18.9 acre school site directly across from a park, the school will combine the beauty of the Twelve Bridges master plan with a well engineered educational facility.

"Twelve Bridges Middle School will set the standard for the seven future middle schools planned in the district," said Roger Yohe, superintendent of Western Placer Unified School District, "It is a very well laid-out building that exceeds the standards of most high schools, let alone other middle schools."

Passerbys can attest that the rising structure shows promise of educational opportunities in the area. With the announcement of Mary Boyle as the school's first principal, things are moving forward quickly and discussions surrounding a new mascot and school colors are under way. Boyle is currently the principal at Glen Edwards Middle School in Lincoln.

Twelve Bridges High School, set on a spectacular site, is scheduled to open in August of 2008. The state-of-the-art facility will service approximately 1,200 students and is built around a “learn-by-doing” philosophy. The bi-level facility will span 29 acres and include subject specific learning labs, as well as a host of recreational spaces. In addition, the high school site will be home to a brand new library shared jointly between the high school, the City of Lincoln and the proposed Sierra College Lincoln campus.

Since fall of 2005, homeowners with young children have been utilizing the new Twelve Bridges Elementary School. It serves kindergarten through fifth graders and can accommodate up to 600 students as the area continues to grow. This brand new facility is host to an array of activities, from art workshops and martial arts courses to Pee Wee Sports and open gym hours. In addition, Lincoln Little League and Lincoln Youth Soccer are scheduled to use the fields at the new park located adjacent to the elementary school and a junior golf camp is planned for the Catta Verdera County Club this summer.

With homes ranging in size from 1,600 to nearly 6,000 square feet, Twelve Bridges has assembled the most respected builders in Northern California to provide this unique variety and balance, including Centex Homes, Greenbriar Homes, JTS Communities, Parkland Homes, Pulte Homes and Richmond American Homes.

The key to Twelve Bridges' appeal is its offering of a natural setting with all the conveniences of the city. Residents have close proximity to the employment opportunities of Roseville, Rocklin and Sacramento, as well as access to shopping and fine restaurants. The Roseville Galleria is within easy driving distance from Twelve Bridges.
