Robinson High School's band was on hand to celebrate the official ribbon cutting of Building 22, the newest addition to the growing high school. The school's principal, Robert Bhoolai says the added space will help relieve overcrowding, especially on testing days.
During testing, there were up to eight classes in the lunchroom, which is not an ideal environment for students. There were several teachers who floated classrooms prior to the new construction.
The new building is approximately 11,160 square feet, and features 12 classrooms. The building was designed to look new and modern, yet still fit in with the original architecture of the school. Building 22 includes two computer/testing labs, LED light fixtures, and state of the art projectors in each classroom.
Superintendent Jeff Eakins, Deputy Superintendent Chris Farkas, Principal Robert Bhoolai, and Board Members Stacy Hahn, Lynn Gray and Steve Cona cut the ribbon to officially open the new building.
The project also includes a new student parking lot, along with a new Driver Education course.
