Bond 2023 Updates

Bond 2023 Logo with Blueprint Icon

Alamo Heights ISD voters overwhelmingly approved three bond propositions in May 2023. Bond 2023 will provide updated learning spaces at all campuses, continue to address safety and security, and allow the district to be better community partners with additional parking, improved traffic flow, and outdoor and meeting spaces for community use.

The work will be divided into three project packages. Planning for Package One began in summer/fall 2023. AHISD is committed to sharing regular updates about the design, planning, and construction phases during this exciting time for the district.

The new high school schematic design was shared at the January 2024 Board Meeting. Construction at AHHS is expected to last from May 2024 until August 2026.

Package One also includes the relocation of the Excel Academy and Connects program to the current AHISD Central Office and the construction of a new Central Office/Learning Center for our school community.

June 2024 

Summer brought the beginning of construction to Alamo Heights ISD as the first Bond 2023 project is underway at Alamo Heights HS. June brought a flurry of activity at the campus as district staff and construction crews prepared for demolition of the main academic building to begin in July.

Modular classrooms arrived and were set up on the soccer practice field and parking lot at the corner of Vanderhoven and Castano. A total of 61 classrooms and additional office space for administration and counseling will be housed in this new location.

District Technology staff removed devices and equipment like projectors and security cameras from the main building. The STEM building will house the library during construction, and Maintenance staff helped set up racks of books and spaces for a circulation desk and computers. They also assisted in moving classroom items and teacher belongings to the modular classrooms.

Tree protection was installed outside and inside the main building, temporary walls were constructed along with some selective demolition.

Vacant land at the corner of Broadway and Castano and the former Colony House Apartments will be converted to temporary parking lots and crews began both projects.

“A Walk Down Memory Lane” - April 2024 

 With a nod to the past and a look to the future, hundreds of Mules took A Walk Down Memory Lane at AHHS in April 2024. At this special event, community members were able to walk the halls, take pictures, look at yearbooks and class photos, reunite with classmates and teachers, and share their favorite memories.

Additional photos can be found on the District's Facebook page.
