Pasadena ISD will hold a dedication celebration and open house for the Dr. Kirk Lewis Career and Technical High School Wednesday, May 27 at 6 p.m. The school is located at 1348 Genoa-Red Bluff adjacent to Sam Houston Tollway. The public is invited to attend.

Through discussions with local business partners, community members, parents, staff and students the concept of this campus was discussed during the 2009 strategic planning process. Conversations revealed a state-wide need for skilled labor workforce. In response, Pasadena ISD voters approved the construction of the $37.5 million high school in the 2011 bond. The campus opened in August of 2014 and currently serves 1,250 students from all five high schools in Pasadena ISD.

Opening the Dr. Kirk Lewis Career and Technical High School has alleviated overcrowding of the district’s high schools. In addition, it has increased the capacity and capability of the district to meet critical needs of the community by providing students the opportunity to pursue vocational pathways along with core curriculum and to graduate from high school prepared for college as well as immediate employment.
