This phased, multi-year capital facilities project includes extensive renovations and additions at the district’s three high schools: Maine East, Maine South and Maine West. Work includes renovations to entrances, classrooms, labs and security. In addition, a new stadium fieldhouse and athletic addition will also be constructed.
Maine East: Work to the 89-year-old building includes renovating the school entrance tower, which once served as a training space for pilots, and reconfiguring classrooms and labs to promote collaborative learning and leverage instructional technology.
Maine South: This 54-year-old building hasn’t had a major addition since 1998 and lacks a secure and welcoming front entrance. Work includes building a new enclosed cafeteria where an existing courtyard is, reconfiguring classrooms and labs and renovating the entrance. We will also improve circulation and security throughout as the students currently need to go outside during passing periods.
Maine West: This school opened in 1959 and is the only district school without a fieldhouse. In addition to building a new fieldhouse, we will also reconfigure and enhancing instructional, tutoring and fine-arts spaces. Additionally, we will create a two-story space at the center hub of the school - the cafeteria - with monumental stairs leading to a lower level.
