The new Johnston High School will sit on 345,000 square feet and contain a capacity of 1,800 students in grades 10-12. The total project cost was $81 million. The new high school will be well-equipped and have better accessibility to lockers, common areas, and exits. The school will be divided into academic areas or wings, giving both students and teachers the ability to easily communicate and share with one another, with a potential to promote dual learning environments by combining classes for special projects, guest speakers, and lectures.
