For the first time in more than a decade, a new high school is coming to Hillsborough County. 

With it will come new boundaries that dictate which students will attend the school.

The school, temporarily called TTT, will be built on the north side of County Road 672, east of US Highway 301.

According to school officials, fast-growing student populations in the southeastern area of the county prompted them to build an additional school.

The facility, worth an estimated $80 million, is expected to open August 2020 and will accommodate approximately 2,400 students.

Most of the students will be reassigned from Lennard and East Bay high schools, and a handful will be transferring from Newsome and Durant high schools.

An open house held for parents Wednesday night revealed the district's boundary plans.

"If we’ve drawn the boundary in a way that doesn’t make sense for [parents[, they’ll need to tell us and we can go out and check it before the school board approves that," said Lorraine Duffy Suarez, with the Hillsborough County School District.

The school board is expected to adopt the final attendance boundaries in the fall.
