A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at Grossmont High School last Tuesday to celebrate the official opening of the school's new Humanities building.
The $16.75 million, 35,000-square-foot building is the largest project paid for with Proposition U funds to date, according to the Grossmont Union High School District, and gives Grossmont 31 new classrooms.
Prop U was approved by local voters in 2008 and Prop H in 2004.
Work continues on four new tennis courts and a new auto shop.
Across town at Helix Charter High School, the school's new 34,000-square-foot performing arts complex, with a 410-seat theater, dance studio, chorus room, costume shop and more is scheduled to open around the end of the year, according to district spokeswoman Catherine Martin.
The project is expected to cost about $15 million.
