Construction Set to Begin on a Brand-New West Philly High
Officials held a ceremonial groundbreaking on Tuesday morning for the new West Philadelphia High School, at 49th and Chestnut Streets.
Construction on the three-story building begins next month, with doors opening in the fall of 2011. It will replace the existing West Philly High, which opened in 1912.
Principal Saliyah Cruz says the new building will give the students the upgraded facilities they deserve:
"State-of-the-art science labs, which is something my students do not have in the main building. We have an arts program that doesn't have the facilities that it needs. There'll be a theatre for the arts program (and) a fully equipped film studio for the film program."For full story go to: http://www.kyw1060.com/
