St. Charles, MO – As part of S.M. Wilson’s construction career education program, fourth and fifth grade students at Henderson Elementary recently visited the construction site of their future high school.

The Francis Howell School District is building a new Francis Howell North High School on the same campus as the current building at 2549 Hackmann Road. Once the new building is complete, the old school will be demolished and turned into an athletic complex.

Students learned about the construction process and had a chance to see the blueprints and 3D drone footage of the new building. It was an energizing day that sparked the excitement of the future Knights and maybe even some future architects and builders.

S.M. Wilson is the general contractor on the new high school project. The company’s SKILLED program provides hands-on opportunities to students to integrate academic learning and focus on future employment in the architecture, engineering and construction industries.
