Catholic High upgrading technology & building during the summer months

Posted: Updated:

Catholic High is undergoing some upgrades this summer.

Demolition is going on in the hallways to make for new technology.

Principal Steve Straessle said while there's no replacement for good teaching in the classroom, the new tools will help enhance the learning experience.

"This building is a half century old. When it was constructed fax machines weren't around - much less computers, internet, smartboards things like that. So education has changed a bit in that time and we're trying to prepare for the next half a century," said Straessle.

The historic building will also have a slightly new look thanks to some new windows and doors. Catholic High is also in the process of adding a new track.
