Revitalizing a historic high school to respond to modern curriculum
Drawing inspiration from the town’s original high school built in 1918, the school showcases a traditional exterior coupled with a state-of-the-art interior. This iconic building underwent renovations for the first time in 40 years. Accommodating 2,500 students, each wing includes collaboration and breakout spaces. The expanded CTE program makes Cleburne High School a premiere school among surrounding districts. CTE programs include IT, construction/architecture, manufacturing, ag/welding, veternary science, plant science, AV, CNA, pharmaceutical science, and criminal justice to name a few. The school remained fully operational during construction, making phasing a challenge. All phases will be completed in April 2020. The project included the demolition and relocation of the baseball and softball fields, followed by the construction of the band practice pad and new baseball and softball fields and facilities. The new 2,500-seat, multi-use competition arena attracts the community for a wide variety of activities.
