West Mesa High School is getting a major makeover just in time for its 50th birthday.

The school, built in 1967, is getting nearly $19 million worth of work done, including a brand new M building that comes with 52 new classrooms.

The project, which is slated for completion in January 2017, also includes a one-story, 15-classroom addition, removal of some portables and an upgraded central courtyard.

School and district officials hosted a groundbreaking ceremony to announce the upgrades. Acting Superintendent Raquel Reedy, School Board Member Peggy Muller-Aragon and West Mesa Principal Mark Garcia all thanked taxpayers who, through their support of bond issues, helped make this and other projects like it possible.

APS has another bond election on Feb. 2 that could help pay for more renovated and new schools.
