North High Magnet School proudly dedicated the school's new Engineering, Science and Technology facility just before the start of the 2010-2011 school year.
North High Magnet engineering students created an initial design for the building, and the final product incorporates many of those ideas. The four-story, 30,000-square-foot facility houses additional classrooms and labs for engineering and other unique programs including Biotechnology, Bio-Science, and Multimedia Technology. The lower level includes a new wrestling room, a room for the electric vehicle development program, and a workout facility. A two-story greenhouse will provide science students with hands-on experience in botany. The building’s green roof will reduce heat loss and help with temperature maintenance year-round. North High Magnet students will assist with the maintenance of the building and grounds by developing irrigation and solar projects to further provide sustainability for the facility. Private donors provided funding for the $8 million facility.
