Early Signs of Vista Ridge Expansion Visible

The early signs of an exciting new addition to Vista Ridge High School are in place ahead of the start of school year 2023-2024.

The addition will add 32,000 square feet of much-needed space, which will relieve capacity concerns and include classrooms for career and technical education. Located on the south side of campus, the expansion will boost capacity by approximately 450 students, offering 18 classrooms. 

Within the fenced-off area, students, families, visitors and the VRHS workforce will notice a modular building which will be used by our partners at Nunn Construction to manage day-to-day operations. Crews will break ground in the fall semester, and will remain on campus until the scheduled completion date in the fall semester of 2024. 

We do not anticipate any disruption to normal operations, and our partners at Nunn will make every effort to minimize the impact to the VRHS campus.
