The school is being built on a timeline along with the renovations of elementary schools. The new building is planned to be open to students in August 2021 and the demolition of the current building will begin into the winter of 2022.
The project is reported to be on track and on budget so far by Chris Potts, UA school district’s chief operating officer and adviser for the project. The total budget for the high school direct construction cost is $109,145,000. The new stadium is planned to be finished in fall of 2019 while athletic teams continue to use the middle school fields and temporary ones constructed at Northam Park.
The finalized version of the building and project is available in a walkthrough video on the UA Schools website.
