Esperanza College Prep, a charter high school operating at two sites in Los Angeles, is constructing a school facility on a former car sales lot.
The construction project will enable the school to consolidate operations at one East Los Angeles location, reports The East Sider.
The 29,000-square-foot building will have 20 classrooms, including a science lab and three science classrooms. The classrooms will be adjacent to a large studio that will facilitate collaboration on academic projects.
Esperanza has about 440 students at two sites: Hilda Solis Learning Academy and the former Soledad School. The school is part of the EdNovate charter network.
Construction is expected to be completed later this year.
