New School Groundbreaking Set

Bryan res­i­dents are invited to join Bryan City Schools to cel­e­brate the start of con­struc­tion on the new middle/high school. The project is the begin­ning phase of a mas­ter plan that will unite all 2,000 stu­dents, from preschool through grade 12, on one cam­pus for the first time in the school district’s his­tory. The event is set for 10:30 a.m. Thurs­day, April 23, at 1350 Foun­tain Grove Drive, Bryan. The project, which will relo­cate the entire Bryan City School dis­trict to one cam­pus, includes a new, approx­i­mately 150,000-square-foot com­bined mid­dle and high school for grades 6 through 12, ren­o­va­tion of the exist­ing, approx­i­mately 120,000-square-foot mid­dle school into a new ele­men­tary school for grades Pre-K through 5, and demo­li­tion of the exist­ing Bryan High School and Wash­ing­ton and Lin­coln

ele­men­tary schools. The new mid­dle school and high school are sched­uled for com­ple­tion in July of 2016. The ele­men­tary school ren­o­va­tion is sched­uled for com­ple­tion in June of 2017. The new cam­pus will be a 21st cen­tury learn­ing envi­ron­ment that empha­sizes open­ness, col­lab­o­ra­tion and project-based learn­ing. The new middle/high School will fea­ture a court­yard for out­door din­ing, small group assem­blies and class­room instruc­tion. The energy-efficient design will incor­po­rate nat­ural light­ing and help reduce util­ity costs for the schools.
