The existing building of 68,000 square feet received a total interior upgrade including new flooring, new finishes, new ceilings and lighting, and refurbished, ADA-compliant restrooms. Within the existing school, the former media center was divided and space reallocated to provide for two new computer labs and four resource rooms. During this renovation the mechanical system also was upgraded to geothermal heating/cooling, allowing for more efficiency and less maintenance.

With the project’s completion, the school has been modernized and presents a fresh face to the community.
