Hillsborough County (Florida) district breaks ground on 3,500-student high school

Aug. 4, 2023
The school is scheduled to open in 2025 and will serve the fast-growing area of Wimauma.

The Hillsborough County (Florida) district has broken ground on a new high school in the fast-growing area of Wimauma.

The district says the still-to-be-named school will be designed for 3,500 students. It will be built on an 87-acre site in southern Hillsborough County that also will be home to an elementary and middle school in the future.   

The three-story high school will have a two-story media center, culinary lab, automotive lab, a theater/auditorium with an orchestra pit, and a two-story gym. It is set to open in August 2025.

Interim Superintendent Van Ayres says the rapid development that Wimauma has witnessed over the last few years has brought about an urgent need for this school. 

The new high school will also provide relief for nearby Sumner High school and Lennard High School. 

The architect is Harvard Jolly PBK, and the construction manager is Beck/Envision.
