When South San Antonio Independent School District trustees voted to reopen West Campus High School, roughly a decade after the campus closed due to flood damage, they were betting students would want to return.

When the campus opened as a satellite school of South San High School this fall, enrollment numbers disappointed those trustees who pushed for the reopening, with less than 50 ninth graders enrolling. West Campus students were able to take only core classes at the newly reopened site and had to ride buses to South San High School for electives and extracurriculars.
