Lee High School renovations
BATON ROUGE- After years of planning and nearly $55 million in renovations, Lee High School is nearing completion.
"It's been in the planning stages for several years, but this is probably going to be the most significant Baton Rouge school in the last 50 years," said EBRSS Superintendent, Warren Drake.
The school will feature some things that have never been seen before in Louisiana.
"The technology, the design and the curriculum, it's just going to be an incredible school," said Drake.
The school will have three different academies for digital media arts, bioscience, and engineering with robotics. Some of the programs will even have access to the International Space Station and classes at LSU.
The school can hold up to 1200 students. Applications will open up online in October. Construction is expected to wrap up in January, but classes won't begin until next August.
