The Chapel Hill-Carrboro City (N.C.) district has completed a $70 million renovation of Chapel Hill High School in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Construction had been expected to be completed a year ago, but the pandemic pushed the timeline back, reports

The biggest part of the school’s renovation was the demolition and reconstruction of buildings A and D

The new A and D buildings now connect to the existing B and C buildings, creating an interior courtyard and amphitheater that is almost entirely closed off. Students no longer have to go outdoors to get from one building to another.

Other safety upgrades: shatterproof windows at the entrance of each classroom and new security cameras around campus.

Also part of the campus upgrade were the renovation of buildings B and C, and construction of an E building, which houses an auto shop and public safety classrooms for fire and EMT training.

The renovation added a student parking lot, six tennis courts, a fitness room, a culinary lab, a media center, gender-neutral bathrooms, a black box theater, and a dance studio.
