Architects discuss high school transformation

March 15, 2014


The Huckabee architectural firm was at Granbury High School earlier this month for a series of meetings to gather input and ideas from students, teachers and staff for the high school transformation.

The meetings included representatives of academic departments, fine arts, career and technical education, the library, JROTC, drill team and campus administrators from both GHS and Crossland Ninth Grade Center. Also meeting with the architects were the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council as well as students from clubs and extracurricular organizations.

The high school transformation, which will include a new ninth-grade wing, will be in the design phase for several months with initial construction beginning in the fall.

The entire project will take two years with a planned completion in August 2016.

Tim McClure, a customer management associate with Huckabee, stated that district staff and teachers had toured new career and technical education facilities in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

Plans for controlled entry vestibules at elementary and middle schools as well as new gymnasiums at Acton Elementary School and Emma Roberson Elementary School are nearly complete with construction scheduled for the summer.

Approved by voters in the November 2013 election, the bond projects will transform the high school for a campus with grades 9-12, enhancing CTE and fine arts programs, ensuring the safety of all campuses, building a robust technology infrastructure for model classrooms and many other improvements.
