The Jal Public Schools project was selected for the Education Award as part of the 2019 NAIOP’s Best of the Best.
The Jal Bond Project was a K-12 campus renovation for Jal Public Schools. The campus-wide improvements included new construction of the elementary and junior high school facility, with significant renovations to the senior high school’s main building. The project also included the construction of two new gymnasiums, a central office, an amphitheater, and a natatorium. In total, the project consists of over 154,000 square feet of new and renovated space.
The consolidated campus features new classrooms, state-of-the-art science, and computer labs, and a culinary arts facility. Adjacent to the school is a replacement aquatic facility that includes an indoor lap pool with a retractable roof, and an outdoor aquatic pad with a water slide. The Jal Aquatics Center is the only facility of its kind in the city and will be open to the public for recreation and aquatic rehabilitation therapy.
