Kingwood Middle School Detention Ponds Complete, Athletic Fields Started

The Kingwood Middle School reconstruction project is nearing completion. The new stormwater detention basins are complete, grassed in, and virtually fenced. The athletic fields have been laid out. And the track is under construction. The photos below show what the project looked like on 6/9/23.

The new KMS track and football field will go where the old school was.
The detention pond, framed by trees, will help screen afternoon activities from neighbors.
The pond already sports grass on the banks to retard erosion.

The detention basin gets an A for the most creative shape. Such basins do not have to look ugly.
Lower angle shows that the basin will enhance the south entry and provide a restful look. The black wrought-iron fence looks gorgeous. And it will keep kids out of mischief.

Humble ISD has created an architectural gem in the new Kingwood Middle School. The District hopes to complete the project soon. The school itself opened in August 2022.
