AHS Modernization and Reconstruction Has Similar Costs to a Remodel BUT...
  • Reconstruction has a 100-year return on investment versus a 40-year return on investment for a remodel.
  • Reconstruction allows for continuous learning while a remodel requires shifting students and teachers to other facilities.
  • Reconstruction meets high safety and security standards while a remodel does not.

  • improve heating, cooling and ventilation;
  • be under one roof with two points of entry;
  • increase student safety;
  • provide new classrooms and building technology.
