A sneak peek inside Bishop Heelan Catholic High School's new building opening next month
Bishop Heelan Catholic High School is just a month away from opening the doors of its brand new building.
55,000 square feet, that's the size of the brand new two-story Bishop Heelan Catholic High School building, featuring 29 classrooms.
15 of those classrooms are upstairs, and 14 of them right below.
"There's also excitement of having something new," said Christian Bork, principal.
The two story building, comes with a great improvement from its original building across the street.
"It'll essentially replace the classrooms that are in the current structure that was built in 1949. Looking forward to bringing our staff over. One of the highlights being five new learning labs for our science," said Bork.
It comes with 48 security cameras, 629 lockers, and a 70-inch tv screen in every classroom, along with wireless internet access. There are also five science rooms, three learning breakout rooms, and four offices in a unified Administration Hub.
"We do have an elevator. We'll be ADA compliant and ready to accept all students which has always been our mission," said Bork.
School principal Christian Bock says, the new building is not only an up-scale enhancement to the campus, but also, an enhancement bringing positive impact to the students' learning experience.
"This is going to give honor to what our students do everyday. This facility is indicative of the high quality students that we have and the outstanding instructors and teaching staff that we have here," said Bork.
School officials said they plan to have a grand opening celebration for the public during Catholic Schools week, which is at the end of January.
