The first Sam Houston High School opened in September 1923 in the former Milam Elementary school building at Mason and Hackberry. Small enrollment and protests from parents forced the
School District to close the high school within a month and reassign its students to Brackenridge and Main Avenue High Schools.
The second Sam Houston High School opened in 1942 at 463 Holmgreen – now Carroll Academy—in a building financed by the Works Progress Administration. Sam Houston was part of the
WW.White School District, which consolidated with San Antonio Independent School district in 1950.
In 1960 the high school moved to its present location at 4635 East Houston Street. Sam Houston is a $1 million Texas High School Project grant recipient for the redesign from the Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation. Through its smaller learning communities format, Sam Houston has created small, nurturing, learning environments where students can strive academically and socially.
In Spring 2009, the campus announced its “Premier Program” – The MET. The campus now boasts its new Hi-Tech Manufacturing Engineering & Technology Programs.
