Our kids deserve the best, especially when they’re at school. A good education depends on good resources and a great learning environment. At North Kansas City High School, they are doing just that.
After a 3-year long project, North Kansas City High School has updated its facilities to provide students with the latest technology for a better learning experience.
The construction project totaled $65 million and added over 165,000 square feet to the existing school. A $114 million bond referendum helped fund this project, as well as the construction of two new elementary schools and two sixth grade centers.
New construction sites sought to update and expand the current school. These new areas included a performing arts center, a band rehearsal room, a weight room, a cafeteria, a gym, and a collaboration area. Throughout the entire 3-year project, the school never closed, and kids could continue their education without interruptions.
The project’s purpose was to “preserve the past but also update the school with the latest technology to adequately prepare students.” The 90-year-old school has deep roots in the community, and it was important to school officials that the construction project respected that history. Nevertheless, changes needed to be made. The addition of e-learning classrooms as well as a library media center has now brought North Kansas City High School into the 21st century. Kids will have the tools necessary for a high-quality education without sacrificing the history of the building.
At Construction Protection Systems, we’re proud to have had the opportunity to play a small part in North Kansas City High School’s latest construction project. Stay tuned for more updates from the innovators of 1-2-3 Door Shield—the original, reusable door protection system.
