Sam Houston MSTC is receiving $101.4 million for a new school for 2,550 to 2,750 students that will incorporate the new science classroom and laboratory wing.

The school held the first of three community meetings last fall to share information about progress on the project’s design. In addition to providing a comprehensive high school curriculum that emphasizes math, science and technology, the school also offers licensing programs and vocational certification in a variety of trades including auto mechanics, plumbing, and cosmetology.

The new school will be designed to have a collegiate feel with a large open courtyard that will also function as a flexible learning space. The classrooms and labs will feature large windows to incorporate transparency throughout, enabling programs and student projects to be on display. The design process is going well and moving quickly toward completion.
