The Academy conversion will require additional instructional spaces to accommodate the program expansion to include middle school grades and bilingual program. There will be a 13,700 square foot addition at the covered area south of the existing library, which would allow cost savings as no roof is required. A new security vestibule will be also integrated at the main entrance to increase student safety.

Renovations and upgrades to include:

  • Classroom spaces (general learning, science, art, music, special education)
  • Restrooms
  • Cafeteria/kitchen
  • Stage
  • Heating, ventilation and air conditioning
  • Plumbing and electrical
