BRW School Architecture


As a Dallas ISD parent and volunteer I get several publications sent to the house about the district’s growth (boring), money (drama), test scores (disappointing), and this time about CONSTRUCTION OF NEW SCHOOLS (Awesome!).  Right there was picture of our very own renovation and addition of the Woodrow Wilson High School.  The article is titled, “Applause, Applause for New Additions to Woodrow Wilson”.  I quote… “Woodrow Wilson High School, the only International Baccalaureate World School in the Dallas ISD, is growing and improving, breaking new ground both physically and academically, all to the benefit of more than 1,500 students.”

As a DISD parent, I appreciate all the work, sweat, and effort BRW puts into its projects.  Standing Ovation from me.

  1. Malia, I joyfully watched the renovation happening at Peabody, but then I checked and noticed that the windows being installed are only single pane windows, not the more energy efficient and quiet double pane windows. I was amazed this was happening in 2012. I was told such single pane windows were being used everywhere in DISD. Check at Woodrow Wilson. Is that happening there?

    At our new addition to Woodrow the new windows are 1″ insulating glazing. At both J. L. Long and Woodrow Wilson we are also renovating the historic wood windows. The historic windows are incompatible with insulating glazing. At these restored windows we are utilizing 1/4″ clear glass which is historically appropriate.
