On April 4, the first community input meeting regarding the rebuild for the new Chino High School was held in the MPR.

The architects in charge of planning the new campus, met with member of the community to discuss what they wanted to see how the new school would look like.

The school district and architects at first glance estimated that the school would be able to accommodate more or less around 2,400 students. The school would have 90 “tech stations” which include:

  • Classrooms
  • Labs
  • Shops
  • Administration and Student Services buildings
  • Swimming pool
  • Performing Arts Theatre of +/- 500 seats
  • MPR and kitchen
  • Sports fields

Community members voiced their concerns with a number of the points on the initial rough draft of the school plan. Parents believe the size of the campus should be expanded. Chino High would be the newest and most technologically advanced campus for the community, and they fear that the students, who have transferred to other schools before, will return to attend the new campus.

With the proposed number of students that can comfortably be placed in the new school, the fear arose that the school would reach maximum capacity and transfer students would have to be denied.

A rough draft of the construction schedule was also presented at the meeting. The design/planning process is as follows:

Spring/Fall 2017: design and planning process
Fall 2017/ Summer 2018: agency approval
Spring 2019/ Fall 2021: construction

Construction of the new campus is going to be divided into 3 phases:
Phase 1 will be the front of the school, and as of now it will be built facing Jefferson Ave where the garden area, varsity softball field, and Little League fields are located.

Phase 2 will take place where the current sports fields, ceramics classroom, and quad area are.

Phase 3, the final phase of construction, will cover most of the remaining areas on campus. The baseball field, tennis courts, and stadium are not going to be redone at this point in time, although, the community has showed a lot of interest in having these facilities upgraded also.

There is one more community input meeting on April 27 and all are encouraged to attend.
