2,000-student high school set to open in Upper Arlington, Ohio

June 15, 2021
The 395,000-square-foot campus is 100,000 square feet larger than the existing high school.

The new high school set to open this summer in Upper Arlington, Ohio, will feature natural lighting, larger classrooms, learning stairs, a learning center, and an 11-lane swimming pool

ThisWeek Community News reports that the 395,000-square-foot Upper Arlington High School will have three floors of academic space, and overhead garage doors so teachers can open their rooms to main hallways for flexible learning and collaboration. The school will have capacity for nearly 2,000 students.

The new building is 100,000 square feet larger than the previous high school, which was built in 1956 and is being demolished. 

The south end of the new school will house science, technology, engineering, and math studies. The east side of the school will house the 11-lane indoor pool. The pool room has frosted windows to help regulate water temperature and reduce outside lighting.

The gymnasium has a capacity of 2,000 and has three full-size basketball courts and also has a wrestling practice room along with a field house.

The performing arts center, which will seat 1,550, has a full-deck orchestra pit and a scene shop. Music students will have also access to two soundproof rooms.

The library will be a two-story space that will have learning stairs leading from the first floor to the second floor. The students and staff are encouraged to use this as a hangout spot.

The building also will house the district's central office.
