There's great news for one southeast Houston high school after building plans were unveiled for the school's multi-million dollar facelift.The preliminary building plans were unveiled to students and faculty of Worthing High School. The school had previously been named the worst high school in Houston. Since then, they have hired a new principal and enrollment and community involvement have increased. School officials say that the upgrade will benefit the students and will not affect day to day activity.

HISD Board President Lawrence Marshall explained, "The space is available for us to accommodate temporary dwellings for our students. We will not lose any down time academically."

Now with the help of the $2.4 million grant, the school is ready to be reborn. The goal for the completion of the upgrades is approximately three years.
