The Pasco County (Fla.) district is replacing its oldest high school with a $58 million campus.
Gulf High School in New Port Richey will be replaced by new construction on the southeast corner of the existing campus, reports The Tampa Bay Times.
Gulf High opened its first campus in 1922. It has been housed in its existing facilities since 1977, the school's website says.
District officials had considered renovating the campus, but a closer look by architects concluded that the more effective use of money would be to give Gulf High a new school. The project also will enable Gulf High to remove its portable classrooms.
Students will continue to have classes in the existing facility until the new one is complete.
The main building is expected to be completed by 2023, other outdoor projects are projected to be completed by 2024.
