What happens at our school?
Students learn how to ask challenging questions, think critically, develop research skills and apply them within a global context. Together with our campus Dual Language program, which provides students the opportunity to engage in a multi-language curriculum, we encourage students to think independently and drive their own learning, to grow as open-minded, reflective inquirers.

Caldwell Heights…growing hearts and minds to make positive change in the world.
The original Caldwell Heights School was located in a small rural community north of Round Rock, one mile east of IH35 on Chandler Road (University Boulevard) also called Caldwell Heights Lane. The only original structure still standing in the once thriving farming and ranching settlement is the two-story rock house built by T.J. Caldwell, who founded the community.
In 1913, Caldwell Heights School was established after Chandler Common School District (which was located several miles west of the new school) closed.
Caldwell Heights School consolidated with the Round Rock Independent School District in 1941, and the old building was placed on the market for $100. Round Rock ISD continued to use the building for shop classes until the structure was sold. When Caldwell Heights School District was eliminated, the student population was divided between Round Rock and Georgetown ISD.

The current Caldwell Heights opened its doors to students in August 1999.
