Construction is Under Way!
The Warrensville Heights City School District has broken ground at the old Randallwood Elementary School site in phase I of the Master Facilities Project. The first of two new school buildings will house pre-k through 5thgrade when completed, replacing three elementary schools in the community: Eastwood, Westwood, and John Dewey. This fully funded facility has a budget of $30 million and will feature upgraded technology throughout as well as flexible learning spaces to accommodate 21stcentury learning. Phase I of the Facilities Project is presented to open in fall of 2020.
Phase II of the Master Facilities Project is to build a student-centered 6ththrough 12thgrade middle/high school. The site of this new facility will rest between the high school on Northfield Road and middle school on Warrensville Center Road. The new building will ensure every student develops different skills such as problem solving and critical thinking, preparing them for success in college and career. District officials hope to complete and open the 6ththrough 12thgrade campus in the summer of 2022.
In an article by Cleveland.com, Superintendent Donald Jolly II was quoted “I think it’s a very monumental occurrence… [The community’s] support in building the new facilities is just a testament to our community and their investment.”
