Like many public schools in the country, the original structure of LHWHS dates back to the 1950s. Numerous adjacent school districts have renovated their high schools in recent years (see map) in order to address the needs of aging facilities. In addition, certain types of instruction are impeded by outdated science labs and classrooms that are not designed for small group learning and other modern teaching methods.
Prop R passed on April 5, 2016, with 64% of voters supporting an $85.1 million bond referendum to renovate Ladue Horton Watkins High School, as well as other less extensive projects on other district campuses.
Capital Campaign Supporters
The LEF is extremely grateful to those who donated or pledged in the early phase of the capital campaign to support renovations at Ladue Horton Watkins High School. The generosity of these donors demonstrated both community support and the willingness of many to take a leadership role.
Nearly $2 million has been pledged to support the high school renovation and will be used in addition to the funds generated by Proposition R, which taxpayers approved on April 5, 2016.
Learn more about the progress of the high school renovation on the Ladue School District renovation website.
Commemorative Bricks are also a terrific way to support the campaign, while leaving a legacy as part of the new high school campus.
Two choices are available: Small Commemorative Brick: (4"x8") $350 - Order two or more and pay $250 each!
Large Commemorative Brick: (8"x8") $600
