Though construction has been going on for a while, dignitaries from the city of Brighton, 27J Schools and Brighton High School students were in attendance Aug. 11 for a groundbreaking ceremony for the school's new STEM and CTE Center.
The project's funding came from last fall's successful $515 million bond package. Both Riverdale Ridge and Prairie View high schools will have STEM/CTE Centers as well.
The multi-level building will cover 56,000 square feet and be able to house up to 350 students.
"Together, we are building a stronger school for a stronger community," Brighton Mayor Greg Mills said. "It gives students who want to pursue these careers (such as human services, nursing, engineering, carpentry) the skills to immediately join the workforce."
The building should be finished in time for the 2023-2024 school year.
