Goshen Community Schools Breaks Ground On Two New Projects

At a time when many school districts have too much space and not enough students, Goshen is having the opposite problem.

 
They broke ground on a project that will add a 5th and 6th grade intermediate school, and one that will add 16 classrooms to the high school and renovate some existing spaces.

Superintendent Diane Woodworth says a demographic study showed Goshen slowly growing over the last ten years and continuing on for the next decade.

“There’s a lot of exciting things going on in our town, or our small
city, just a vibrant, growing little city and so the school district is
just a part of that,” Woodworth says.

The two projects together will cost nearly 76-million dollars. It’s paid for
through a referendum that voters approved during the 2018 midterms.

Construction at the high school is expected to take 18 months. Students
will be able to start classes in the new intermediate building in the fall of
2021.
