Construction continues at Monroe High School as beginning of year nears
Two weeks from Thursday, Dougherty County students will head back to class, and one school will look a little different when it reopens its doors.
Monroe High School is still working on a multi-million-dollar improvement project.
Principal Vinson Davis said they'll be ready to move into one of those new facilities in August.
Then at the beginning of the January semester, according to Davis, the new ninth-grade hall and fine arts wing should both be completed.
"We're just excited this year on the campus of Monroe, at the great Ponderosa, to just welcome in a new era — a new era of cutting-edge technology in our classrooms, a new era of instruction, and a new era of leadership for us," he said.
Davis said Monroe is also celebrating coming off the state priority schools list last year, marking how the school had recently improved its graduation rate and college and career readiness.
