Johnston School Board to Discuss Architects for New High School
Progress on the proposed new tenth- to 12th-grade high school continues.
Plans for a new Johnston high school are beginning to take shape.
The Johnston school board is scheduled to consider an architectural service for the proposed new school.
The board agreed to move forward with a new tenth- to 12th-grade high school building at its Nov. 14 meeting.
The district's Physical Environment Committee and administrators met to discuss architectural services and interview firms for the school's design.
The committee and administrators are expected to provide a report on the process and a recommendation for hiring a firm at Monday's meeting.
The proposed 325,000-square-foot building is estimated to cost between $72 and $75 million, not including the purchase of land.
In December, the board approved the purchase of about 125 acres of located west of Northwest 100th Street and north of Northwest 62nd Avenue. The land could be used for the new high school. The price tag of the land was estimated to be $5.75 million.
