Construction Shuchita Warner told the school board
that it took a village to get the new Northern High
School ready to open after the Christmas break.
These “Village People,” not to be confused with the
zany pop group famous for “Y.M.C.A.,” included the
teachers and students who helped with the arduous
move over the holidays and of course everyone in-
volved with the project in the school systems’ staff
and the Scheibel Construction firm.
Even though the new school is now open, the
grounds remain a construction zone and will be so
until the summer of 2020, when the project with
so many moving parts will be completed, and the
school system can finally do a dedication ceremony.
The old school still stands, set to be demolished
soon. It was built in 1972 during an era in which
open space classrooms were all the rage. The idea
has long since been debunked. But up until the start
of this month Northern teachers and students have
been living with razor thin walls and a puzzling
floor plan that sometimes required going through
one classroom to get to another.
Northern High School Principal Stephen Wil-
liams feels giving teachers their classrooms back
so they can concentrate on instruction is the biggest
advantage so far that he has seen in the new school.
Williams said the transition has been relatively
smooth with a few minor hitches. School board stu-
dent member Thomas Ridenaur, who attends the
school, said the new corridor flow was much im-
proved but could be made better with additional
When the new school opened it had a state rated
capacity of 1,440 but there were already more stu-
dents in it than that. Warner points out, however,
that the school did not open overcrowded, that it was
all in how the state determines capacity versus what
its real capacity is. The old school had a state rated
capacity of 1,223 students and was most assuredly
So, what remains to done? When that old school
is demolished, rising on the rear portion of that
space will be a separate administration building.
The current administration, including Williams,
are spread out in spaces including the media center.
Those spaces will then be available for instruction.
Visitors will enter through the administration wing,
which will be connected to the school with a cov-
ered walkway.
