In September 2006 a $24.2m renovation project was completed which included a new student commons, a 1000-seat auditorium, an auxiliary gymnasium, fitness room; and modernization of the library, alternative education, administrative offices, and four pod areas. Currently, the east football field is under construction and will be ready for use in September 2008. Improvements include track resurfacing and reconstruction of the high jump area. The field has been stripped, irrigation systems and drainage installed as well as a new sand base.
