A state-of-the-art facelift has been in the works for one Metro high school.
Hillsboro High School leaders broke ground on a new $80 million renovation project on Wednesday.
The school has planned to update the existing building and add additional classrooms. There will also be a new parking garage and new athletic facilities.
Mayor Megan Barry and Schools Director Dr. Shawn Joseph were among the speakers at the groundbreaking.
Dr. Joseph said the renovations will be an improvement for all of Nashville.
“Strong community schools are essential to building a strong neighborhood, and thus, a strong Nashville,” Dr. Joseph said. “So regardless of your ZIP code, you deserve a high quality school.”
The construction has been expected to be completed by the summer of 2020.
