This week at Alpha, returning students are slowly getting back into the flow of busy schedules and early morning rises, while new grade 8s are getting to know the school and learning what high school life is all about.
Over the summer, the construction workers, as well as some Alpha students, have spent their days working hard on site, making obvious changes to the school. Some of these great changes include new doors at the entrances of the school, windows with working blinds, and repainted walls on the exterior of the school. There were also more major works like seismic upgrades, renovated classrooms, a new classroom, and a spacious band room.
In the near future, the construction of the new wing will be completed, and all old lockers will be taken out and replaced with new ones. Once all the construction is finished, Alpha will have another building with 2 floors. In this building, there will be 14 regular classrooms, 7 science labs, 4 computer labs, an administration space, as well as multiple learning areas. There will also be a new main entrance with a more convenient drop off arrangement, outdoor plazas, courtyard, and parking lot.
This project started in the summer of 2016, and we can’t wait to see the finished product in the fall of 2018.
