SAN DIEGO — Historic San Diego High School is set for a major makeover after City Council approved a new 99-year lease with San Diego Unified School District this week.
The 139-year-old campus, located at the southern edge of Balboa Park, will get a new school entrance, a revamped central quad and other modernizations, school leaders say.
The school district released a “flythrough” for the campus changes — a computer-generated rendering giving residents a sneak peek at the plans — which they say will provide “students and families a world-class educational environment they deserve.”
“San Diego High has always been intertwined with the history of San Diego and Balboa Park,” said Francisca Del Carmen-Aguilar, the school’s principal. “And now, we can stay where we’ve always belonged, allowing students to grow and thrive in the heart of the city.”
