Nixon History

Over the years, the school has gone through several improvements. Nixon High School completed a $40 million renovation. Most of the older buildings on campus were demolished in order to create and reconfigured a two-story building centered about a U-shaped courtyard. Funds for the project are mostly derived from a construction bond package approved by voters.  Along with new classrooms, Nixon HS also completed a Tennis Complex and Track & Field Complex.
