Construction has been occurring all summer and we are very excited about the new changes. The new two-story building will open at the start of this school year and will house Culinary, IB Film, Telecommunications, 2-D and 3-D Art, Photo, English and Special Education classes. Another quad area has been constructed outside this building for students. The building and the new outdoor area are simply amazing. Pictures are posted on the Granite Hills High School Facebook page (the page with the photo of the bronze Ernie since there are several GHHS Facebook pages out there.) Of course, we will continue to enjoy the new 50-meter pool, new tennis courts and multi-purpose courts as well. Many old buildings were demolished during the summer, including the 240’s, and ten (10) relocatable buildings were driven away. Construction has begun on the 60 building (which will house Math, Journalism and Publications) and also on the 130 building. The main center of our campus, however, will be free of construction and green fences. This will be a great semester and a great year!
