"So many people worked so hard to bring H.S. Thompson back to this community. It’s a big day to see the kids walking into their brand-new school. This school continues to invigorate our community but most importantly, provides the opportunity to have the high-quality education and facilities our kids deserve."
A Beacon of Pride
The building was designed to serve as a beacon highlighting and broadcasting the familial pride and nurturing of the students by the community, its parents, and other adults from the Bonton area of Dallas. The library sits above the secure primary entry in a double height volume with views to downtown and Fair Park. This vista provides a glimpse to the future for the students. The primary active spaces such as gymnasium and cafetorium with its raised stage and sound reducing moveable partitions, are placed in such a way that students and educators can use them by day while the community has access after school hours without having to enter the rest of the academic spaces.
