    Humble High School was one of the earliest schools in Harris County to offer classes in automobile mechanics, starting the program in 1924.  The Texas State Department of Education praised Humble for the quality of the school's Auto Mechanics and Manual Training program.  However, the school board voted to discontinue the program at the end of the 1926-1927 school year, due to the low number of students enrolled and the high cost each student had to pay to be in the program.

    The Auto Mechanics Building was located on the northwest corner of Hermann Street and Avenue D.  The district would later use this property as the location of the superintendent's home.
