The prestige of the honor places us among a cohort of schools across the nation that purposefully meet student academic needs and beyond. Additionally, on behalf of Air Alliance Houston, the Staff and Faculty were awarded the 2013 Clear Horizons award for "their dedication to educating Houston's youth about the importance of environmental stewardship and preservation."Our new building (built in 2011) is Certified LEED Silver.
