History

Briargrove opened in January 1958 at 5300 San Felipe, which was the south side of Grady Elementary School (the campus is now Grady Middle School). The school moved to its permanent site at 6145 San Felipe in fall 1958 [http://es.houstonisd.org/briargrovees/] .

In fall 2006 the school moved to a temporary site at 5430 Hidalgo; the former school building at 6145 San Felipe was torn down to make way for a brand new school building. In fall 2007, the school moved to the new campus at 6145 San Felipe.

The new campus was built by FKP Architects, with Heery International, Incorporated as the project manager. The original budget for the campus is $16.000,000 [http://www.houstonisd.org/HISDPortal/departments/ContentPage/0,3099,45555309_59997080_64872248,00.html] .
