BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. The front entrance panels of Bonita Springs High School went into place Thursday morning.
Construction is moving along as planned and is expected to finish on time for the 2018-19 school year, according to the Lee County superintendent Greg Adkins.
The district hired 15 teachers and coaches for a variety of extracurricular activities including football, basketball, soccer and volleyball.
“We’ve put our plans in place, we’ve had all these preparations and now we’re getting to see the facility going into place and it’s very exciting,” Bonita Springs High School principal Jeff Estes said.
The Lee County School Board agreed to move forward with plans to build the school in April on a lot at Imperial Parkway and Shangri-La Road. The location created controversy as some nearby residents believed the construction would create commotion and traffic complications.
The 76-acre campus is expected to house nearly 2,000 students.
