Construction will begin this summer on the new Greeley West High School. Preliminary site and school design was completed in May. A Design Advisory Group composed of teachers, administrators and students at the school provided recommendations and feedback to architects. Most of the existing school will remain in place during construction, and there will be little disruption to learning as the new school is built.
Features include a safe entry way, expanded auditorium, hub with flexible seating for meals and learning, career and technical education areas including outdoor yard, two-story design, ample windows and natural light, and outdoor learning and gathering spaces.
