PHASE TWO BEGINS WITH ADDITIONS TO BLACKLICK AND HIGH POINT ELEMENTARY

 

During the spring of 2021, our district project team met regularly to design plans for additions to Blacklick Elementary and High Point Elementary. The architect and construction teams worked closely with district administration and principals of the two schools to create learning spaces that will alleviate the current crowding in our buildings as well as accommodate the growth occurring in our area.

The floor plans for each school include:

  • Ten additional classrooms
  • New gymnasium
  • Extended cafeteria space
  • Increased small group spaces
  • More storage areas
  • Additional music and art spaces
