HOUSTON, TX – Sam Houston Math, Science, and Technology Center (Houston ISD) hosted a grand opening ceremony to celebrate its new school, which officially opened to students in January.

Built as part of the 2012 Bond Program, the $101.4 million project was designed to have a collegiate feel with plenty of classroom space, informal meeting areas to facilitate project-based learning, a large outdoor courtyard, and a fine arts wing with an 800-seat auditorium and black box theater. The 360,000-square-foot facility also features an updated JROTC area, as well as a grand learning stairway, which will function as both a gathering spot for students, as well as a flexible space for class lectures and presentations.

HISD Board of Education Trustees, HISD Interim Superintendent Grenita Lathan, Sam Houston MSTC Principal Alan Summers, and the Sam Houston MSTC JROTC, band, cheerleaders, and dance team, as well as various dignitaries, school stakeholders, community members, students, parents, and staff were present last Friday, November 1, 2010 for the grand opening at Sam Houston MSTC, 9400 Irvington Blvd., 77022.
