Building Use

This building currently houses the Math, Science and Health & Physical Education department and Information Technology Center. There are general classrooms located in the building, a greenhouse, planetarium and laboratories. The building will function in the same capacity after the completion of the project but will also add space for the growing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program. There will also be improvements in the building infrastructure including mechanical and electrical systems as well as other interior improvements.

*To the extent feasible, the design and construction of this building is following standards set forth by the United States Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (L.E.E.D.).
