Our completely renovated education building re-opened in the fall of 2002. Check out the virtual tour of our facility on the campus map.

  • Curriculum Library
    • The library in this room holds all education programs and materials that were used in Texas schools since 1998. I promise you’ll find all the answers to your educational queries here.
  • K-6 Classroom Laboratory
    • Students set this room up as a classroom and practice before trying the real thing- kids and all. The room has colorful mats, kids magazines (remember highlights?), educational toys and other classroom necessities. It is an observation room, so there is a two-way mirror that students can see into but kids can’t see out.
  • Media Technology Room
    • This room is chock full of materials for education students, die-cut machines, pipe cleaners, construction paper, lamination machines and a well-equipped computer lab—whatever you need to get the job done.
  • Classroom 117
    • This is the largest classroom on campus. Usually, it serves as a lecture hall.
