Lubbock High School

Lubbock, TX 79401
Lubbock High School is one of five high schools in Lubbock, TX. The doors to the school were first opened in 1891 with fifteen pupils. The first school district was formed in 1907 and had a ten mile radius which included the town of Lubbock.
 The construction of the present high school building was begun in 1930. The School Board appropriated $650,000 for the new building on 19th street. The contractor depleted the $650,000 before the building was completed. However, because he refused to compromise on the workmanship or materials in the new school, the contractor sold his family’s oil fields in East Texas to complete the building. He went broke and never built another building after the building’s completion in 1931.
In the summer of 1999, Lubbock High School was admitted to the International Baccalaureate Program, and they just celebrated their 25th anniversary of the Lubbock Exemplary Academic Program (LEAP), one of the state’s most successful academic magnet programs. They consistently have several National Merit Scholars this included six for the 2014-15 school year. There are currently over 2,000 students and 125 teachers at the campus.
