The New Rancho High School
The newest edition to Las Vegas Schools is the placement of the old Rancho High School. The new design might seem surprisingly familiar to the students. The new Rancho High School is based on the very same style employed in most suburban shopping malls. The new 330,000 square foot school was built on the web site of the former schools athletic field. The old school will be torn down later in the school year. The new Rancho High School follows a two story mall style and the total constructing expense was around $75 million. The money came from the Las Vegas Schools $3.five billion capital improvement plan approved by voters in 1998. The new design did trigger a small concern but it actually creates a quite functional and friendly space which can add to the success of a school. The Rancho High School principal plans to divide the school into four distinct sections each with its own assistant principal and student services. These sections will possibly be divided based on grade level or program sort. Rancho High School is well known for its magnet programs that aim towards the medical and aviation fields. These magnet programs will have new offices and specific facilities on the new Ranch High School campus. The ROTC will also have a new region. The Rancho High School ROTC is one of the largest in the U.S. and the facility will be able to accommodate over five hundred students. The Ranch High School replacement is part of a extended term replacement plan by Las Vegas schools. The program was to replace five existing schools Sunrise Acres Elementary, Wendell Williams Elementary and Rancho High School are the first 3 with Booker Elementary and Virgin Valley Elementary to stick to.
Rancho High School is Second to Have Mall Style
Rancho High School is the second Las Vegas School to have the mall design. The initial was at Buffalo and Grand Teton. The mall design creates a new and distinctive space that provides organic light and fresh air to the classrooms even though making a much more secure environment than a standard school design. Each the existing principal and the president of the construction business creating the new school are former Rancho High School graduates, who are extremely pleased with the contemporary replacement. <a href=http://www.perfectiononwheels.com/school-assemblies/school-assembly-ideas.asp>school assembly[/url]"
