The Chandler Unified School District is planning to build a new high school near Gilbert and Brooks Farm roads in south Chandler AZ 85249.
It will be about 272,000-square-feet including a football stadium, performing arts center, gymnasium, and athletic fields.
The district aims to start construction in February and have the school open by July 2021. The total cost of construction is estimated to be about $70 million.
CUSD was projected to add 3,000 students over the next decade. Therefore, a new high school will be necessary to prevent class sizes from growing.
While other school districts have considered closing schools, Chandler’s growing populations has prompted CUSD to build several new schools in recent years.
