The West Valley will have another new school in the fall of 2019.
Construction is underway on the Litchfield Elementary School District’s School 16 in Goodyear’s master-planned community Sedella, thanks to voter-approved bonds, adjacent ways and other means. The total project cost is roughly $15 million.
Over in Avondale, the Tolleson Union High School District is constructing West Point High School. It is expected to open next summer at the northwest corner of Avondale and Encanto boulevards.
Litchfield Elementary School District’s as-of-yet unnamed School 16, set to open Aug. 5, will be located at 18601 W. Campbell Ave., north of Indian School Road and east of Perryville Road. It will service kindergarten through eighth-grade students.
Situated on 18 acres, the 85,000-square-foot school will be energy efficient, Planning Principal Courtney Frazier said.
