Design for second high school approved by school board

Posted: Updated:

The plans for the second Bozeman High School were approved at last night's school board meeting.

The school board did not want to have plans made for the new high school until the bond passed, but now that those funds are a go.we have an idea of what the empty lot will look like in 2020. 

"Our focus us is on what they are calling a town center type design with learning streets throughout the school with the town center being the commons area." said Chair of the Board, Andy Willett. 

The design committee began working with architect firm CTA to create a design that was presented to the entire school board Monday night.

"The design itself is really neat with a lot of field space and open space and there was a lot of great energy in the board room," said Willett. 

Superintendent Rob Watson thinks that this design will be excellent for students as well as the community.

"I do feel like it will be a good representation of what is important in education today, but also what our community wants," said Watson. 

Plus, the one thing so many people are itching to know about the new high school is what the school colors and mascot will be, and the good news is that the decision may be coming sooner than we think.

"Some of those colors and or mascot may have to be incorporated into the building," said Willett. 

The next step for the site is to have a construction plan so they can break ground next spring, with the school being ready in time for the 2020-2021 school year.
