Perhaps the most architecturally beautiful school in the Lubbock Independent School District. Lubbock High School was built in 1930 using designs that reflect Northern Italian Baroque styling. Imported Italian tile was used in much of the main building.

The facility is an historical landmark, registered in the National Registry of Historical Places.

The three-story building includes a gymnastics gymnasium and dance studio, and the school facilities include baseball fields, softball fields and competition running tracks.

The woodshop is undergoing conversion to a band hall, a project ongoing in 2001.

The old band and orchestra hall will become a new orchestra hall and two science labs.

The project will give the band, orchestra and choir rehearsal rooms.

Lubbock High School's main campus is located at the intersection of Main Street and 19th streets. Other campus locations are Chapman Field, the band practice field -- at 23rd Street and Avenue X -- the Tennis/Aquatic Center -- at 14th Street and Avenue T -- and Westerner Field, at University Avenue and Erskine Street. Baseball and softball are played at Westerner Field.

The school has seven computer labs. One lab is a Macintosh lab used by the English department for writing. One lab is a math lab. Of the seven computer labs, six are Internet-ready, and the school has additional Internet-hookups in the library and counseling center computer lab.

The school has 210 lab computers. Also, each classroom has at least one Internet-ready computer. LHS uses, predominantly, Dell computers.

The baseball team garnered both the District and bi-District Championship 2000. The girls' soccer team was District-Tri-Champions for 2001, and the members of the gymnastic team were district champions as well. The boys and girls 2000 wrestling teams were both District Champions 2000-2001.

The school provides access to the National Honor Society, and a student council, which was the first one in the school district to win a Sweepstakes Award. The 4H, band, orchestra, choir, math and science teams all participate in the state Academic Decathlon, and have been district Academics Champions for 14 consecutive years in 2001.
