Construction on the Severance High addition project will begin over the holiday break and is anticipated to continue through June 2025. Students, staff, and campus visitors may notice:
Temporary walls to contain interior construction.
Fencing to delineate exterior construction areas.
New routing for student walkways.
A portion of the student parking lot utilized for construction equipment.
Signage indicating construction zones and new pathways.
The construction team has worked with school administration and the Safety & Security Department to ensure minimal impacts, and the safety of our students and staff. Safety plans have been updated to reflect these temporary changes, and communicated with local law enforcement and first responders.
The Severance High addition is a planned expansion to the campus, adding 42,239 sq. ft. and bringing the total school capacity to 1,200 students. The additional wing, or “pod,” will house 18 classrooms, including flexible learning spaces and science labs, a culinary kitchen with catering prep space, teacher work rooms, collaboration space, and conference rooms.
