New Hallsville High School set for fall opening
Hallsville ISD’s new high school is three-quarters of the way finished and on schedule for students to occupy its classrooms and hallways by Aug. 27.
District spokeswoman Carol Greer said Tuesday the new high school is about 25 percent from being completed with the district already making plans for its summer move to the campus.
The high school is being constructed as part of a $96 million bond issue approved by voters in November 2007. The bond also paid to build the new North Elementary School that opened in August.
The 370,000-square-foot high school, on Cal Young Road, is being constructed by WRL General Contractors. The city, school district and Harrison County have worked together to make improvements on Cal Young Road and Cider Lane to “improve travel and safety to the school,” Greer said.
A centerpiece of the new school will be a rotunda being built next to the main visitor entrance. The school will feature academic wings, career technology education rooms, a student mall, two elevators, weight rooms, locker rooms, tennis courts and a state-of-the-art gym with the capacity to seat 1,920 people.
