Architect's rendering of the new Carter entryway.

The community and students served by David W. Carter High School can look forward to the start of renovations and additions at the campus in March 2018.

Plans call for a number of improvements to the Oak Cliff campus that will substantially update the look of the school inside and out. Exterior enhancements will include a new, expanded front entry, a reconfigured bus drop off area, parking lot lighting and fencing, landscape improvements, removal of portable classrooms, and window and roof replacements.

Inside, there will be new administrative offices, a 1900-seat competition gym, a storm shelter, a new fine arts addition, renovation of science labs and the auditorium, corridors, classrooms, the auxiliary gym and locker rooms.
