THE HISTORY OF SAM HOUSTON HIGH SCHOOL
Sam Houston High school was originally founded in the year 1878. It’s original name was
the Houston Academy. There were many name changes for the school.
Houston Academy: 1878 to 1881
Clopper Institute: 1881 to 1886
Houston Normal School: 1886 to 1895
Houston High School: 1895 to 1926
Central High School: 1926 to 1955
Sam Houston High School: 1955 to 2008
The original building pictured to the upper right (year 1909), was in existence until 1919 when
it burned down. A newer building was raised in the same block in downtown Houston,
bordered by the streets of Austin, Capital, Caroline and Rusk. In 1955, the present day Sam
Houston was built on 9400 Irvington Boulevard. The former Sam Houston downtown became
the administration building and was eventually destroyed. The only reminder of the former
school in the downtown area is a placard.
