Tour A: Texas City ISD STEM / Robotics Center
1015 14th Street N, Texas City, TX 77950

The new Texas City STEM Center is located behind the existing Industrial Trades Center and will serve all students, K-12. This unique space will provide opportunities for students to experience new learning environments that will stimulate knowledge in science, technology, engineering, and math studies.

Marathon Oil, a local industry partner, has generously donated $1M to this project and is an active participant in the development of the building and curriculum in this center. The goal is for all students to identify potential career fields that they are qualified to study and may carry them beyond graduation from high school.

There will be a Fabrication Lab that provides for both metal and woodworking. Additionally, a high-end computer lab will support the advanced engineering courses planned to be offered at this new facility.

Tour B: Clear View High School and Counseling and Student Services
500 S Walnut Street, Webster, TX 77598

Clear View High School is a totally new facility from the 2017 Bond Referendum. The campus has been housed in two of the CCISD historical sites including starting in the original League City Elementary School and lastly in the original Webster High School which opened in 1939. The campus was developed with a unique program that would focus on assisting students who were contemplating dropping out of school or do not do well in a traditional classroom. The campus still has this focus but has also included more curriculum course offering and post-secondary opportunities. As the new facility continues to house the Cosmetology and Nursing certification programs the old facility did, the newest certification program for the campus and CCISD is the Welding program. Students from all over the district can enroll in these programs. Which provides the ability for the campus to serve a much higher capacity than the 350 students that originally moved in. The full-size classrooms even accommodating a low student ratio to staff keeps the building with the ability to be flexible.

With the Rebuilding of Clear View High School, the district was left with the decision of how to handle the facility that was moved out of. The decision to preserve the original 1939 façade and original admin and library area was made. After several iterations of what it should house, the Counseling and Student Services Department welcomed the opportunity to be able to house their staff in one location in an area where their services were needed. The building was transformed to enhance it’s natural original building and design but update to a modern feel. It also preserves the history for many in this area who were served by Webster High School, Webster Intermediate, Clear View High School or the many other iterations of these campuses that were housed here.
