Paul Sandoval Campus Full Buildout
Almost a year before Northfield High School (NHS) graduated its first class in May 2019, DPS acknowledged they wouldn’t be able to wait for the 2020 bond to build another classroom building; projections showed more seats would be needed for the 2020-21 school year. The original plans for the Paul Sandoval Campus at E. 56th Ave and Central Park Blvd. envisioned additional classroom buildings and expanded music, performance, and athletic facilities beyond what was built in 2014, when the first class arrived. The DSST building has been added, and DPS was able to get the final buildout phase of construction off the ground quickly by continuing to work with the same architect, LOA Architecture, and the same builder, Adolphson & Peterson Construction.
NHS teachers signed a beam and came out to see it lifted into place on the new building that will seat 1,000 students. DPS determined that the current building would not be big enough starting in the 2020-21 school year.
