Student exposure to practical, hands-on lessons

Barbara Jordan High School is a 650-student replacement career and technology education center for the existing core curriculum school. Career programs include cosmetology, childcare and education, culinary arts, welding, automobile technology, allied nursing, dentistry, video production, and architecture/construction. This project is part of a large bond program put forth by Houston ISD and involves monthly meetings with staff, faculty, board members, students, parents, and the surrounding community. At each meeting, Corgan worked closely which each of these stakeholders, confirming their needs were being met during the design and construction process. This close working relationship throughout the entire project ingrained the culture and district requirements in us, allowing us to provide the most effective design solution for the district and community.
