French and Spanish clubs, ROTC, FFA, color guard and drill team also keep students active. Athletes compete in baseball, basketball, track, football, golf, softball, diving, tennis, volleyball, wrestling, soccer and swimming. Summer Creek also keeps students busy during the summer, with a range of sports camps and other activities.
With 435,000 square feet, the $71.6 million Summer Creek campus is built to serve 3,200 students, and includes a fine arts auditorium, natatorium, career and vocational facilities, food court and learning resource center. Other campus highlights include a black box theater and an industrial kitchen that is home to the district's only culinary arts curriculum. The school also boasts plentiful computer labs and four open-air labs in the building where teachers can conduct classes when they need a larger space.
Summer Creek is arranged in several small learning communities where students spend the majority of their time attending core academic classes of English, math, science and social studies. The smaller groups allow house principals, counselors and teachers to personalize learning for students.
The campus is located within five miles of Fall Creek on a 67-acre site on the southwest side of Beltway 8 near the extension of W. Lake Houston Parkway.
