SHERMAN, Texas -- We're getting our first look at the design for the new Sherman High School.

One goal for the new 450,000 square foot building in the city's southwest sector is to be a grand sight that people can see from far away. The high school's main entry will be three stories tall, with a library on the second and third floors.

The Sherman Independent School District wanted a modern look for the building, so there are several walls of glass that will provide students with a view of what the architects call the "pride walk." 

The walk will start at the street and go through the school, into the courtyard, and to the back of the property where the Career and Technical Education building will be located.

The purpose of the pride walk is to link the school to the community and foster feelings of pride and school spirit throughout the school. That seemed to be one of the favorite aspects for many people at the meeting Monday night when the design was introduced.

The school board approved the design plan unanimously.

"I'm pumped! I'm so excited," said Sherman ISD board president Tim Millerick. "This is a huge step to approve the schematic design. The scheme at this time is on target for the grandness that we want for Sherman Independent School District -- both in practical size and scope for our program, and then to be the pride of the town."

The design also features larger spaces for extracurricular activities like band and athletics.

Another cool feature is the CTE building, which will have a college campus feel, with classrooms being multi-use and teachers having the freedom to use different classrooms.

Sherman ISD is planning on breaking ground for the new high school in August, with a target date of august 2018. They hope to open the new high school in August of 2020.
