The Clark County district hopes to open the 1,800-student South Career and Technical Academy in 2026.

Clark County, Nevada, commissioners have approved permits for a new magnet school in the south Las Vegas valley, despite strong opposition from neighbors.

KLAS-TV reports that the Clark County School District wants to build a three-story facility, South Career and Technical Academy on a 20-acre lot. The school would have capacity for 1,800 students.

However, some homeowners in the area say there just isn’t enough space.

“We find ourselves in a situation where we cannot justify in any way putting children’s lives and the lives of others in harm’s way," says Mike Pride, a homeowner. "The safety of our children should be paramount."

The school district says it hopes to start construction next fall and open the campus to students by fall 2026.
