Colorado K–12 District Breaks Ground on New High School

The Boulder Valley School District in Boulder, Colo., recently broke ground on a new facility for New Vista High School, according to local news. Funding for the project comes from a $350-million bond that voters approved last November to improve buildings district-wide. The existing New Vista High School was originally built as Baseline Junior High School in 1952.

The new facility will be built on the same site as the existing school, cover 76,000 square feet, and cost an estimated $47.2 million, according to 9News. The facility will offer better energy efficiency, reduced maintenance costs, and is expected to last for at least 70 years, said district officials. It will include amenities like a performance auditorium, flexible learning spaces, and outdoor learning spaces.

The district partnered with MOA Architects and Adolfson & Peterson (A&P) Construction for the project’s design and construction. Completion is scheduled for fall 2024, according to the district website.
