More space was needed for the high school, junior high, and elementary school students. New construction includes two-story classroom wings for high school and junior high students, a new 12,000-square foot gymnasium with a 29-foot clear height to the bottom of the roof deck, and other miscellaneous circulation areas such as corridors, elevators and stairs. Additional new construction is attached to the existing high school built in 1982. A block veneer pattern is integrated with metal panel siding to compliment the existing building. The completed project has a capacity for 900 students.
