Ron Brown College Preparatory High School

The Ron Brown College Preparatory High School was originally constructed in 1966, however, the building was shuttered due to decreased enrollment in 2013. The school’s renovation program was implemented over two phases to modernize the facility for a new all-male high school, particularly for young men of color.

Phase 1 included the modernization of the building’s main entrance, which is centrally located and connects the structure via two wings—an academic wing and a multi-purpose wing. Additional modifications included: a new main office and administrative suite; a new, expanded library/media center; a cafeteria/multi-purpose room, music room, lab spaces and classrooms. The modernization will required the shoring of structural walls. Phase 2 of the project entailed renovations on the second and third floors, including the gymnasium and auditorium.
