New Campus Delights Students and Staff in Paradise, California
Four years after a massive wildfire destroyed most of their town, students in Paradise are enjoying the grounds of a brand new campus today.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Ridgeview High School in Paradise took place Monday, one day before classes began.
“We are really excited about this facility,” Superintendent Taylor told KRCR. “It’s been a long time coming. I don’t know if people know this but Ridgeview was our oldest school in the district and it was in need of repair. It was on a list to do pre-fire, and of course, now it is bigger and bigger than what we ever anticipated.”
The facility took 10 months to build at a cost of and $42 million.
Ridgeview is one of a number of projects recently completed or in the works for Paradise Unified. New renovations at Paradise High School include an upgraded classroom, main office, library, and new pickleball courts.
