Jefferson High School opens doors to its New State-of-the-Art Campus

The El Paso Independent School District will celebrate the completion of its new three-story Jefferson High School on Friday, August 5.

The new state-of-the-art facility replaces the 100-year-old red-brick building that served as the original site for Burleson School and later as Jefferson High School.  Students were officially welcomed into the new school on August 1.

As the bond program modernizes learning facilities for its students it recognizes the value of having 75 years of Jefferson silver fox customs. “At El Paso ISD, we believe in honoring our longtime traditions while incorporating new learning spaces that allow our students to stay inspired and thrive,” said Superintendent of Schools, Diana Sayavedra. “ ‘Viva La Jeff!’ is not just a school chant, but something that is taken to the heart in our El Paso ISD community.”

Some of the other new features already completed include the new weight room and the new baseball field at Washington Park – a partnership with the City of El Paso. Other items included with the $36.6 million project are renovations to the auxiliary gym, a new softball field, field events such as shotput, discus, and long jump. Sitework, bus loops and new parking are in progress and will be completed soon.

 The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place Friday, August 5, 10:15 am, at 4700 Alameda Ave.

 This ceremony will mark El Paso ISD’s 11th celebration associated with seventeen bond campus construction projects.
