Humble ISD held a Community Update Webinar on Thursday, October 22, to provide a preview of the new Kingwood Middle School and other campus renovations that will be occurring in Kingwood.
In 2018, voters approved a bond plan that included funding to rebuild the 43-year-old Kingwood Middle School. This will bring KMS up to the standard of newer middle schools, which feature spaces for collaboration and project-based learning, safety and technology enhancements, and natural lighting. The new campus design also reduces traffic congestion around KMS.
Kirksey Architects showed architectural renderings of KMS during the webinar. Flintco Construction showed traffic plans. Construction began this fall on building the new KMS. Students will move into the new KMS in August 2022. In the summer of 2022, the former KMS will be demolished and new athletic fields will be established where the former building stood.
While Kingwood Middle School was the main focus of the webinar, Humble ISD staff also showed architectural renderings for elementary school multipurpose rooms/gyms being built in Kingwood at Deerwood, Hidden Hollow, Shadow Forest, and Willow Creek elementary schools (group one); new main school entrances for Kingwood Park and Kingwood High Schools; and new Career and Technical Education classrooms being built at Kingwood Park and Kingwood High Schools. Humble ISD is moving toward campus-based CTE programs to create more convenient access for students to participate in specialized CTE programs. Previously, some CTE classes met at the CATE Center on Will Clayton Parkway. The former CATE Center is now Quest Early College High School.
