The Milby High School project reached an exciting milestone in December, when the first wall was raised.

The new structure will now quickly take shape as steel goes up in the coming weeks. The 267,000-square-foot project is a combination of new construction and renovation.

The school will maintain its historical facade along Broadway in Houston’s East End, while creating a modern learning environment for up to 2,000 students.

The new building is slated to open for the 2017-2018 school year.
