Orange Grove High School functions as the primary public facility for the community as well as the school district. The campus architecture reflects the history and culture of the community and is responsive to the south Texas ranch setting. Inspiration came from traditional central Texas brick buildings constructed by German immigrants. The exterior courtyard, which is a student commons area, provides a central and securable access to the various components of the campus.
This new school houses 38 new classrooms (including laboratories), a gymnasium/physical education building, and an agricultural/shop facility. It can comfortably house up to 750 students.
The library for this new high school also functions as a public library for the community. The space is integrated into the building so that it will be accessible after-hours for the public. The reading spaces overlook a landscaped courtyard flanked with covered walkways leading to the parking areas.
