Agassiz Will Soon Be Home

On Wednesday, about 50-60 Woodrow Wilson High School students and staff took advantage of their first opportunity to become familiar with the floors and layout of the Agassiz campus, which will become their new home on March 5.

Students engaged in a scavenger hunt through the building, which has three floors and multiple wings. Carrying checklists of room numbers, they marked off classrooms, offices, conference and multi-purpose rooms, as well as the offices used by other District organizations that will be sharing the campus with the alternative high school.

Originally constructed in 1912, Agassiz has evolved in size and floor configuration over the years, and is today more than three times its original size.  According to District archives, it has had additions and renovations in 1914, ’30, ’50, ’70, ’71, and ’89. Current renovation work is wrapping up in time for the move-in activities, which are scheduled to begin the week of February 27.
