It is comprised of five separate buildings surrounding a secure courtyard. These five buildings comprise the following; Administration/Media Center, Auditorium, Gymnasium, Cafeteria and a Classroom Building. Classrooms exist in all buildings except the cafeteria, but the majority are housed in the three-story classroom building. This building houses general education classes, ESE classes and science labs, along with a collaborative concourse on each floor. These collaborative areas will provide a space for project-based learning, small group instruction and flexible groupings. The project is scheduled to bid and begin construction this fall/winter. The facility is projected for completion in Summer 2022 and to open for the 2022-2023 school year.
