DENVER (CBS4) – Officials with Denver Public Schools broke ground on Tuesday on a new high school on Denver’s northeast side.
The new school, which has not yet been named, will be located on the new Paul Sandoval Campus on 56th Avenue and Central Park Boulevard, south of Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
The school is set to open in Fall 2015.
The school will welcome more than 300 ninth grade students from the Denver Public School District. Once all grade levels are there, nearly 1,000 students will study at the school.
Juniors and seniors will be required to take an international baccalaureate curriculum, which is academically rigorous.
Things will be slightly different for the younger students.
“For 9th and 10th grade students we’ll have a rigorous, engaging, exciting curriculum where students really have the opportunity to be creative and pursue areas of interest and passion,” said Avi Tropper, who will be the principal of the new school.
There will be an academic building and a gymnasium building for athletics and the cafeteria.
