New campus for Lamar HS makes design progress

Lamar High School is receiving a new $107.9 million school, and construction is scheduled to begin by the end of this summer.

The new campus will support the school’s IB program and Business Administration program with a four-story academic wing and adjacent athletics facility, various levels of interior renovation to the existing historic building, a new multi-level parking garage, larger athletics fields, and the preservation of the park-like front lawn on Westheimer Road.

Construction is set to be substantially complete the third quarter of 2018.
