The plan of the school will allow significant flexibility in reorganization if teaching methods change. This school will be on a 140-acre parcel of land, surrounded by many play fields that can be shared with the surrounding residential community. As part of the project, existing roads will be widened, turn lanes added and traffic signals improved.

In addition, two new collector roads, which will connect existing roads, will be built to enhance the main access to the high school. These new roads have been part of the township’s master plan and are necessary to alleviate existing traffic concerns.
