IDEA Completes $3.7 Million Modernization Project For Grossmont Union High School District

“District, staff, students & community/elected officials celebrate the IDEA Center\’s modernization.”

Last May, the district celebrated the grand opening of IDEA Center High School’s new Student Support Services and Classroom Building.

The modernized facility includes state-of-the-art technology, a new counseling and career center, a new nurse’s office, staff lounge, a more spacious administrative wing, a large center courtyard, and a multipurpose room for staff development and school events.

The single-level, four-wing facility also includes numerous sustainable features, including water-efficient fixtures; energy-efficient lighting and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning; low-emission glass, which helps maximize natural light and block unhealthy rays; carpet panels made from recycled material that can easily be replaced when damaged; and a hydration station.

The $3.7 million modernization project took five months to complete and was funded through an insurance reimbursement and Proposition U funds.
