School History

  • The name was given to the school in honor of Armando Chapa, long-time middle school principal, who began his career with Hays CISD as a special education counselor in 1974. He became principal of Hays Middle School (located in what is now the South Campus of HHS) in 1975, opened Kyle Middle School (now Wallace MS) in 1986, served as counselor, at Barton Middle School from 1992 until his retirement in 2004.

    As an administrator and counselor, Mr. Chapa promoted success on the campuses by his hard work, his sense of humor, his sound judgment, and most of all his genuine concern for both his students and teachers.

    Mr. Chapa still lives in Kyle and works part-time as a counselor in a neighboring school district.
