Advocate slideshow: The new Adamson High School

DISD’s $48-million new high school opens today. Adamson High School was the oldest school in DISD, at around 97 years old when it closed this past spring.

The new Adamson comprises 223,496 square feet. The three-story building serves about 1,300 students.

DISD closed 10 schools this year in an effort to save $100 million. The new Adamson High School was paid for with DISD bond money from 2008.

    Tragic that DISD closed Bonham Elementary on Henderson. The school was a blue ribbon campus in the middle of one of Dallas’ most promising infill neighborhoods with tons of young couples moving in and a new preschool parents’ association. I hope the students at the new Adamson can at least enjoy their new building but DISD needs to oust its bad thinkers.
