Delta High School Breaks Ground For New Building
After five years in a borrowed building Delta High School is finally getting a building of its own.
The new Delta High School is right off of Broadmoor Blvd. in Pasco and the new building costs a little under $14 million.
The STEM school is a co-operative run by Kennewick, Richland and Pasco school districts.
It is the first multiple district STEM high school in Eastern Washington.
Since 2009 Delta High School has been operating out of the old CBC campus in Richland.
The new school sits on six and a half acres and will hold 400 students.
Principal Jenny Rodriquez said the students and teachers have outgrown the current campus and are excited about the extra space and updated facilities.
"We're excited, especially about the new lab space we will be getting, Rodriquez said. "There will be four outfitted science laborites, we'll have a full shop, three additional tech labs for our students it will really allow us to update the technology that our students have access to now that they will be in a new facility."
During the ceremony former, current and possibly future Delta High School students all put objects into a jar that represent Delta High School.
The mementos will be put into a time capsule and buried at the school during the dedication.
