The renovations bring pride at Hoffman Middle and Eisenhower High School as well as their communities.


The Near Northwest Management District acknowledged the campus improvements and facility upgrades at Hoffman Middle School and Eisenhower High School during its December Business Network Celebration.

The improvements were made using funds from the $798 million bond referendum passed by voters in 2015.

The management district presented Superintendent Dr. LaTonya M. Goffney and each of the school’s principals with the Grow Near Awards for the district’s work to improve the visual appearance of each school. The work aligns directly with the organization’s focus on rebranding the area.

Work at Hoffman Middle School included new sidewalks and drainage improvements. Eisenhower’s construction was similar and focused on the installation of drainage and fire hydrants around the campus.

The Near Northwest Management District was created in 2001 to address concerns about public safety and economic development in the area of Houston between T.C. Jester Boulevard on the east, Pinemont Drive on the south, Hollister Drive on the west, and State Road 249 on the north. The organization is made up of small business owners, commercial property tenants, and community leaders who promote economic growth in the area.
