Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School Renovation
“Vision without action is a dream. Action without vision is simply passing the time. Action with Vision is making a positive difference.” --Joel A. Barker, American Businessman
Follow Our Progress!
In 2014, Deer Park worked with the community, families, and staff to plan a complete renovation and build-out of the lower level at the Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School. When the renovation is complete, the lower level will become home to the new Deer Park Career Academies center and athletic facilities.

What Are the Projects?
Deer Park Career Academies
Called the “Deer Park Career Academies,” DPCCSD is quite literally building and adding to the electives available to its 7-12 grade students. Not only will students choose from a new, innovative portfolio of career pathways-aligned elective courses, but they will also learn in 21st-century ready classrooms that will provide team breakout rooms, mock interview spaces, and innovative spaces to provide the students with a real world feel of business practices conveniently in their own high school. These classrooms will take up half of the lower level of the building.
Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School Athletic Facilites
Housed next door to the Career Academies, the Deer Park Jr./Sr. High School students, athletes, coaches, and visiting teams will enjoy brand new locker rooms, coaches offices, a trainer room, and a state-of-the-art weight and cardio room. Collaboration for this project began a year ago with the help of community members, coaches, and Deer Park staff.
Thanks to the support of the community, faculty, staff, and Performance Construction, our architects, SHP Leading Design, the renovation will be complete in August of 2015. The restored space will provide students, teachers, and the community with the latest equipment, the ability to train in a modern facility, and a cutting edge space outfitted with the newest technology and modular furnishings.
