New construction[edit]

Beginning in 2014, new construction began across campus to renovate and replace the aged buildings on campus. A new science and technology building, cafeteria, classrooms, and parking was added behind the (at the time) main portion of the school. In 2017, the old cafeteria was torn down and was replaced with new upperclassmen rooms. As of May 2019, demolition has begun on the old main school building, which used to house the main office as well as 4 halls of classrooms.
