Old Highland Gym Getting a Makeover

The renovation of the 68-year-old high school building includes many upgrades and additions.

Highland High School Hornets -- a few with golden shovels -- took part in a groundbreaking ceremony for their 68-year-old gym, which is getting a $12 million upgrade.

The massive project, which is expected to take about a year, includes:

  • Renovated main gym
  • Addition to the auxiliary gym
  • Updated locker rooms
  • Updated athletics offices, lobby, restrooms and elevators
  • New flex room
  • New weight room
  • New wrestling room
  • New PE classroom
  • New dance and cheer room
  • New athletic training area

The gym is the second oldest in Albuquerque, according to Highland Principal Marco Harris. Its renovation is designed to meet Title IX requirements of equal access to facilities and is part of a total campus re-build.
