High School Additions and Renovations

High School Additions and Renovations

The current capacities at A&M Consolidated HS and College Station HS are 2,350 and 1,950, respectively.  Both will have approximately 2,200 students enrolled in the 2023-24 school year.

While there is currently some room for more students at AMCHS, CSHS has six portable buildings in the south parking lot, which contain 12 classrooms.  When CSHS was designed and originally built, it was done so with the intention of adding a second phase to increase its capacity in the future.

Although there is capacity at AMCHS, the science classrooms in the building no longer meet Texas Education Agency standards for science instruction.

The high school additions and renovations proposed in this project alleviate several short-term and long-term issues by increasing the capacity of both schools to 2,700 and delaying the discussion of a third comprehensive high school for the foreseeable future.

Depending on the size, a new high school is estimated to cost between $200 million and $300 million. In addition to construction costs, staffing an operating another high school would add approximately $6 million to the district’s annual maintenance and operations budget.

AMCHS Additions and Renovations - $50.751 million

  • This project would include a two-story building addition to be constructed in the staff parking lot located on the West side of the building.  The addition would consist of mostly Science classrooms/labs to meet TEA requirements and in building a weight room similar to the one at CSHS would also be included.
  • Interior renovations to the existing building would include repurposing the current science classrooms and labs, increasing the cafeteria square footage and functionality, creating a larger and renovated black box theater, renovating and adding square footage to the band hall and creating a functional sports medicine, laundry and storage space for athletics.
  • Because of the location of the building addition, this project also includes funding to modify the bus drive and parking lot off of Welsh.

CSHS Phase 2 - $62.256 million

  • Phase 2 of College Station High School will include classroom additions, including regular classrooms, science labs, CTE labs, and an art classroom.  There will also be an addition of a fine arts orchestra hall, a large ensemble room, and a third gym with additional locker rooms and storage.  The existing orchestra hall will be converted to a black box theater.
