NORFOLK, Va. — The oldest high school in Norfolk needs a makeover.
Maury High School is a part of Norfolk's history. Generations of students have walked its halls for more than 100 years. But time has taken a toll on the building, which was first built in 1910.
The aging school is due for an upgrade, and division leaders are asking for community feedback on a handful of proposals.
A firm, HBA Architecture, presented division officials with four plans. Two proposals would renovate the school, and the others would build a new facility.
The first plan includes re-doing the parking lot and sprucing up learning areas in the school. It would require temporary classrooms for 60% of students for two years.
The second plan proposes a new multi-story addition and adds a new gym. Maury High would lose the auditorium and school kitchen for a year.
Both rebuild proposals include a new stadium for the high school.
One features a new and larger four-story school, and the other would create a six-story school.
The plans cost between $158 million and $180 million, according to the division.
Norfolk Public Schools posted a complete breakdown of the four proposals online. To view, click here.
The next public meeting will take place at St. Helena Elementary School on October 12 at 6 p.m.
