Northwest ISD’s Eaton High School received the “Caudill Class” recognition in the Texas Association of School Administrators’ annual architecture competition, the top honor available for a school’s design.

Eaton High School was one of just three facilities to receive the Caudill Class recognition in the annual Exhibit of School Architecture competition from TASA, along with Deer Park High School North Campus and San Jacinto College District’s Maritime Technology and Training Center. The Caudill Class distinction is awarded annually by a 12-member jury composed of four school board members, four educational administrators, two representatives from the Texas Society of Architects and two representatives from the Association for Learning Environments.

This year, Caudill Class awardees were chosen from 21 projects that qualified for the distinction. For eligibility, facilities had to show superiority in the following categories: community, planning, transformation, design, value and sustainability.

Eaton High School opened during the 2015-16 academic year and is currently in its second year of operation. The 2017-18 academic year will mark the school’s first full year with an entire four-year student body – freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors. The school, designed by Corgan Architects, houses two Northwest ISD academies: the Academy of Aeronautics & Aviation Sciences, and the Academy of Business Management & Entrepreneurship.
