Making Great Strides on Building Additions

We are committed to keeping you informed as we complete construction from the MMSD 2020 facilities referendum.

Summer Renovations Are Wrapping Up

Construction crews have been taking advantage of the unseasonably warm weather to make great strides on the new additions at West High School. Concrete planks have been installed to form the base of the new gym, fitness area, and wrestling area in the new addition on Regent Street. Next, workers will begin structural steel and roof decking. Starting in December, crews will begin digging for the new pool.

In the courtyard, a new stairwell is being installed, which will be accompanied by hallways on the first and second floors to increase building circulation for students and staff.
