Cleveland Heights, Ohio high school to get $95 million renovation

Heights High School, which serves more than 1,600 students from Cleveland Heights, University Heights and a sliver of South Euclid, is on the verge of a massive $95 million renovation. A 2009 review by the Ohio Schools Facility Commission precipitated the move.

They came in and did a complete inventory of our facilities and it came back that, yes, they’re very old and outdated,” says Angee Shaker, director of communications and community engagement for the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District. “It’s long overdue that we tackle this and update our facilities.

Voters passed a $134 million bond issue in November 2013, which is funding the work at the high school and future renovations on two of the district’s three middle schools.

Wiley Middle School will be taken offline, but will serve high school students until the renovations at the intersection of Cedar and Lee are complete. The Wiley campus will then be used for middle school students as their facilities are renovated.
