North Houston Early College High School

Located on the Houston Community College Northline campus, the North Houston Early College High School (NHECHS) is centered around the college-and-career-readiness gap. Students take both high school and college level courses and graduate from high school with an associate degree. The project consists of a new 59,211 SF replacement high school for 400 students. The architecture of this school was designed to support an interactive educational process for high achieving students. Formal and informal learning common areas are dispersed throughout the building. These spaces can be configured for small group or large group learning and are integrated with the latest technology. The project was designed for LEED Silver certification with an emphasis on energy conservation and natural light.
