Ribbon-cutting ceremonies were held last week at Bennett Ranch Elementary School and Falcon High School in preparation for the new school year. School administrators, faculty, parents, and students attended both events, along with representatives from GE Johnson, CRP Architects (Bennett Ranch), DLR Group (Falcon) and Wember.
Bennett Ranch Elementary is a new school that broke ground in August 2017. The 63,000-square-foot facility includes a centralized student common area with a performance stage, academic pods, a gym, and outdoor play areas.
Construction of an academic wing at Falcon High School broke ground in October 2017. Much of the work for the addition was accomplished during the school year. The new wing includes space for career and technical education including medical, agricultural, and automotive training; computer labs; multipurpose classrooms.
