The construction for the new high school includes multiple phases. There will be several new additions to the building with the largest being the Enrico Fermi STEAM Wing. This will house the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math programs.
Existing structures will be treated as "Renovate as New". This means that all existing portions of the school remaining when construction is complete will have been updated and the school will be 100% compliant with all applicable codes.
A portion of the existing school, currently known as D wing, will be demolished. This structure was built in the early 1960's. The new Enrico Fermi STEAM wing will house the classes currently in D wing.
