Lemon Grove School District breaks ground for new project

Lemon Grove School District in Lemon Grover, California, US has begun work to revamp Lemon Grove Middle School and build a new joint-use library. The project also includes construction of a new school office, renovation of science labs, locker rooms and lunch area. The renovated school, which has been closed since June 2010, will reopen in September 2012 and will provide Stem (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Program.

The 13,000 square feet Lemon Grove library, which is slated to open in early 2013, will be situated adjacent to Lemon Grove Middle School near School Lane and Lincoln Avenue and will be co-operated by the K-8 school district and the county.

The design of the facility will reveal inspiration from Spanish mission-style reminiscent of the region’s past.The school board hired the services of San Diego-based Legacy Building Services for designing and building the entire project. The school district has funded the scheme by means of a $28 million bond measure- Proposition W, which the district voters approved in 2008.
