Strongsville City School District passed an $81-million dollar bond
issue in November of 2012 to fund a
variety of construction and renovation projects. These projects includes a new middle school,
major renovations to the high school, critical repairs and technology upgrades
to the elementary schools, and updates to the pre-school and transportation facilities
to improve operations.
The new $40 million dollar middle school is
located on Pearl Road at the site of Center School. The new middle school will replace
both Albion and Center Middle Schools with a state-of-the-art building
including technology and science labs. The building will be open for the start
of the 2016-17 school year. The construction progress is updated monthly at a
Board meeting and a PDF of the power point presentation is posted on line. Please check our website for monthly updates
and pictures of the construction.
The high schoolrenovations include
upgrading to energy-efficient heating and cooling systems and technology
improvements to better serve our student’s educational needs. The high school
will remain open during the entirety of the construction project and phased to
minimize disruption to our students.

The pre-school renovation, transportation renovation and the Allen
demolitionprojects have been completed
as of December of 2014.
The pre-school upgrades included a larger activity space,
additional offices, a larger clinic, a new meeting room, additional storage
space and all new windows throughout the building.
The transportation bus parking lot and access road were completely
replaced as well as some additional catch basins and drain lines were installed
in front of the office area. The roof was replaced on 2 of the 3 buildings at the
Transportation complex. These upgrades will help keep buses in better working
order so the fleet lasts longer while requiring fewer repairs.
Allen school was closed in 2010 and no longer had a viable purpose
for the future of our District. It was
taken down in the fall of 2013 and the land graded out for the quite enjoyment
of the community. Future plans for this
site will be developed by the school Board at a future date.
