$141 Million Waco High School starting construction

Waco Site for New $141 Million High School

The Waco School District is building its first new high school in 14 years. The $141 million high school, the capstone of a $355 million bond-funded construction project voters approved in November, will replace the existing Waco High on property across the street. The new school is expected to open in August 2025 with room for 2,150 students.

The bond project also includes a new Kendrick Elementary School on its current campus, a new Tennyson Middle School on its current campus, and a new G.W. Carver Middle School on the campus where the former G.W. Carver burned down shortly before last school year. The new Carver, which will take in all students from the combined G.W. Carver Indian Spring Middle School formed after the fire, is expected to open next fall, and work has begun on Tennyson. The architect for the high school project is O’Connell Robertson and the project manager Rogers-O’Brien.
