The first undertaking in Phase 1 of the Master Facilities Plan is the High School Project, which will span the years 2014-2017. Cleveland Heights High School will be completely renovated, with historical aspects of the building retained, such as the clock tower, the District's legacy logo. However, the building will be modernized for 21st century learning. Musical, performing, and visual arts will have new spaces, and student athletes and physical education classes will be able to use state-of-the-art athletic facilities, including a community-accessible swimming pool.
Heights High students will attend school at the Heights High @ Wiley Campus beginning in fall 2015. Students will return to the newly renovated Cleveland Heights High in fall 2017.
The High School Project commenced in spring of 2014, with architects, construction managers, owner's representative, community members, board members, District staff and students convening regularly to make sure the constituents' wants and concerns are heard and have an impact on the high school design.
To kick off the project, the Heights High Athletic Stadium was built, with a new grandstand, track, and envirofill turf field.
