Kingwood High School is one step closer to getting some flood relief as the Humble ISD board of trustees on Oct.15, 2019 approved PBK Architects as the architectural firm for a major flood mitigation project.$30M floodgate project. KHS suffered major damage from Hurricane Harvey-related flooding in 2017. Following a $63 million renovation, some parts of KHS flooded during heavy rains in May of 2019 and again during Tropical Storm Imelda in September of 2019. For the 2019-20 academic year, contractors hope to finish gym floor repairs in time to open the gym to student use in early 2020.
