The new replacement for Ponder High School will be located west of the existing football stadium on a 68-acre new site. The new two-story landmark will initially accommodate 800 students in grades 9-12, with core areas designed for an ultimate capacity of 1,200 students. The design was developed with a wide cross section of District and community input, including student collaboration. Primary areas include an open double volume media center / library, a 1,260-seat competition gymnasium, a practice gym, an 800-seat auditorium, and flexible Career and Technology Education (CTE) facilities which include agricultural, woodworking, and metalwork shops. The project also features a large outdoor learning courtyard carefully designed with excellent views overlooking the football stadium.
Expected Completion: Fall 2023
