Comal ISD and Huckabee broke ground on high school #4 last Thursday morning. The event was colored with excitement from school personnel, board members, community members and parents who have rallied for this project since before planning began. The school is sited in one of the fastest growing counties in the nation, offsetting high student capacity at neighboring schools, as well as significantly decreasing the commute for many high school students living in the area.
The design of high school #4 is centered around adaptable and agile learning spaces. A commons area serves as the building’s central hub, which includes the library and the cafeteria. This area is adjacent to the performing arts center and can be closed off from the rest of the building to host community events as needed. A 2-story classroom wing featuring a tiered lecture hall and group break-out spaces lends itself to 21st century learning and collaboration. The campus is also equipped with a comprehensive athletics wing, fine arts wing and outdoor stadium. High school #4 will welcome its first class in the fall of 2020.
