Throughout the summer, work has continued on the site for the new Gahanna Lincoln High School.
The foundation for the building is nearing completion for the entire building. The concrete footings for the academic wing are finished and the foundation work will continue throughout the entire footprint of the building and be wrapped up soon.

During the September 13, 2022 Finance & Faciities Board of Education Committee Meeting, Assistant Superintendent Jill Elliott gave an informative GLHS Construction and Floor Plan Update for the new Gahanna Lincoln High School.
The three-story plan includes a 24% increase in square footage compared to our current high school. With dedicated wings for performing arts, academics and physical education/athletics the floor plan also includes flexible extended learning areas and a few areas to grab a bite to eat.
After examining four design options, a site plan was approved by the GJPS Board of Education on February 8, 2022.
