ExCEL / Multipurpose Activity Center
Huckabee partnered with Terrell ISD to take their athletic facilities to the next level. The new construction included an Excellence Center for Enhanced Learning (ExCEL) and a new multipurpose activity center. These facilities support the district’s mission by providing students with opportunities for personal growth and physical development.
ExCEL is one of the only facilities of its kind within a Texas school system. A truly multifunctional space, ExCEL includes indoor areas for basketball, volleyball, soccer, football, running and weightlifting. The design also features a bistro area with healthy food and drink options and a dedicated academic area, which can be converted from one large conference room to up to five individual classrooms. The space is open to Terrell students and community members.
The multipurpose activity center is a 2-story indoor practice and activity facility that serves students in grades 7-12. The first floor includes administrative offices and a simulated football field, complete with turf flooring. The second floor includes a weight room that overlooks the field and multipurpose rooms that can be used for a number of educational delivery activities, from AV to robotics.
