High-Tech High School on the Drawing Board

TitleHigh-Tech High School on the Drawing Board
AbstractThe Kansas City School District and industry partners are planning an engineering and construction academy that would be a "complete high school adhering to state academic standard." The first phase of the school, set to open in the fall of 2009, will cost about $8 million for the renovation of the Anderson Annex, previously an alternative high school connected to Manual Career and Technical Center, 1215 E. Truman Road. This would house the giant construction laboratory and classrooms. The second phase "would invest $32 million in constructing an earth-friendly building west of Anderson that would be ready with 11th- and 12th-grade classrooms as the inaugural class of ninth-graders are ready to begin upper level coursework." Article includes a schematic drawing of the buildings.
