Press-Tribune: Vallivue Chooses Spot to Build New High School

Posted By on Thu, Jul 25, 2013 at 9:10 AM

Following a May vote to approve a $50 million bond, officials in the Vallivue School District have chosen the location where it wants to build its second high school: 65 acres at the corner of Madison and Linden roads in Nampa.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that Vallivue officials chose the location among five options, but ultimately decided on the Madison and Linden site because the district already owns that property, saving about $2 million.

The current Vallivue High School, built in 2000 for approximately 1,200 students, has a current enrollment of 1,800 and is expected to hit 2,200 by 2016. But if all goes as planned, the new high school will be built in time to open in the fall of 2016.
