The gymnasium at University High School was deemed inoperative in September 2021 after Tropical Storm IDA devastated the region. In the interim, a temporary gym was set up in the playground until the repairs were made to the school's gymnasium. The Facilities Team jumped into action and utilized contacts to procure a company with the skill and ability to build this structure. The district also utilized an architectural firm to ensure this construction exceeded building standards and tied into the existing Life Safety, PA, and Electrical systems. Simultaneously, the Office of Facilities scheduled the abatement and removal of the gym floor and bleachers.
The district is excited to announce the completion of the gymnasium at University HS! This work included a new gymnasium floor, new bleachers, and a new logo and striping for a high quality and upscale finish. The Phoenix flies high once again!
