Crews have started tearing down much of Kennewick High School on South Dayton Street, which originally opened in 1951.
A new $87.4 million, two-story downtown school, with a science wing, dining commons, courtyard and other features is scheduled to be finished by August 2021.
The new building, which will connect to the existing Lion’s Den gym and remodeled auditorium, is designed to hold up to 2,000 students.
Funding for the project is coming from voter-approved bond money.
