Myerstown, Pa., high school is adding $38 million STEM Center

Nov. 14, 2022
The addition will modernize the 60-year-old ELCO High School and enable it to operate more efficiently.

A $38 million construction project will add a STEM Center to ELCO High School in Myerstown, Pa

The 60-year-old building was constructed in 1962 and last underwent major renovations in 1992, reports LebTown

When the project is complete, the high school will have separate areas for tech and science, English and social studies, and science, math, and business education. Teachers in each department will be able to work side-by-side.

The additional space will enable the high school to be reorganized so that programs are situated more efficiently.

For example, school officials said right now, ag classes are held right next to the music room, but after renovations, art will be relocated next to music in a fine arts area. 

The school's emergency medical program has no direct access to the school exterior but after the addition is completed, the program will be able to have real-world training with an ambulance. 

Construction started in mid-July and the Eastern Lebanon County district hopes to have all work completed by November 2024.
