If you have driven by the new high school campus at 201 N. Douglas St. recently, you will have noticed that the walls and glass windows on the exterior of the building have gone up, but what you can’t see is that the construction crew has broken ground on the new gymnasium and pool!
The project remains on schedule as the Balfour Beatty crew wraps up installation of the interior walls, floors, doors, and skylight from the fourth floor down.
In the coming weeks, the crew will continue working on the electrical, water, sewage, and natural gas along the south side of the main building. They will also begin laying gas and water lines along the east side of the property.
Wiseburn Unified School District and Da Vinci Schools have embarked upon an ambitious plan to build a world-class campus for 21st century learning. The 13.7 acre campus will house three separate high schools, Da Vinci Communications, Da Vinci Design, and Da Vinci Science, as well as Wiseburn and Da Vinci administrative offices, a theater/multi-use auditorium, sports field, a gymnasium and pool, and an “incubator” space for school leadership teams to see and understand the “how” of an innovative curriculum model so they may design and launch responsive schools of their own.
Mark your calendar: The first day of high school will be August 22, 2017. Phase 2 (pool, gym and soccer field) will be complete in Spring 2018.
