Design for New Davis HS


A new video released by HISD highlights the planning and final design images for the new 21st century Davis High School. The campus is one of 40 facilities being rebuilt or renovated under the $1.89 billion bond program approved by voters in 2012.

The new Davis, located on Houston’s north side, is being built as a 21st century campus while aiming to preserve the facility’s history and significant building structure for a school that will accommodate up to 1,700 students.

“We want to make sure that we continue to respect some of the history and recognize it, but also with an eye toward the future,” said City of Houston Councilman Ed Gonzalez.

The school’s Project Advisory Team has worked since last year to finalize design concepts for the site. Architect Mark French of Bay-IBI Group Architects says although there were many site challenges with the allocated space, many priorities for the site have now been balanced.

“One of the things we heard was that they really wanted to preserve the historic Davis front as it existed in the 1926 building,” French said.

Construction for the school is slated to begin mid-to-late 2015.

“It’s going to be really important to see where we’re going with future growth, and looking at how we are going to use the land around us,” said Principal Julissa Alcantar-Martinez.

Upcoming Events

Principal Alcantar

2015 is finally here and we are about to embark on something only a few schools in the nation have done so far. We are about to Power UP! Each one of you will get a laptop and our digital learning will change our classrooms, how we deliver instruction and how we communicate and interact in every class. Teachers have been training since the summer and now you will also be a part of the next step in 21st century learning. I am not saying it will be a breeze, all change come with its challenges, but we are in this together and here to help each other as we learn and grow together.

The opportunity to do this has been made available to us not only by HISD, but by our alumni and community members who have helped by providing donations to help us reach our goal to get every student get a laptop this spring. Thank you, thank you, thank you to every one of you who are dreaming with us as we start this journey.

Great things are happening at JDHS and I can’t tell you what a joy it is to be your principal!

Let’s make this year the BEST yet,


Mrs. Julissa Alcantar-Martinez
Your Proud Panther Principal
