Science building to open in January


The construction of the new science building at Palo Alto High School will be completed prior to the start of next semester, according to Assistant Principal Jerry Berkson. 

The building, which started construction in July 2019, boasts spacious classrooms. With the expansion of PAUSD+ next semester, the Paly administration is expecting that the rooms will be used to come extent, according to Berkson. 

Construction was originally scheduled to finish over the summer, but many obstacles unrelated to COVID-19 caused the date to be pushed back, Berkson said.  

Classes that used to be held in the portables will move into the new building when school reopens. The portables will not be removed for many years due to other construction on campus. The Tower Building will be starting renovations in about a year, Berkson said.
