Students who attend Pasco School District’s alternative high school will arrive for classes in a newly remodeled $2.5 million building when the school year starts Aug. 29.
New Horizons High School at 2020 W. Argent Road spent nearly three decades housed in a series of portables on the west end of Columbia Basin College’s campus.
The newly remodeled school at 2020 W. Argent Road is 32,000 square feet. The old CH2M Hill Technology building on the CBC campus was remodeled for the new school.
It is located at the corner of 20th Avenue and Argent Road.
CBC plans to use the area where the old New Horizons was for expansion and construction of new buildings.
The building will house classrooms, cafeteria, library, computer lab and staff workroom and will be ready for students at the start of the 2017-18 school year.
The school district’s capital projects department oversaw the project. JB Arbogast is the construction manager.
The contractor was Siefken & Sons of Richland. CKJT Architects of Kennewick did the design work.
