Detroit Public Schools will host a community celebration for the new $22.3 million Munger PreK to 8 School, one of eight construction projects to break ground this fall, as part of the district’s $500.5 million capital improvement program funded by voter-approved Proposal S dollars. The event will include students, parents, faculty and officials, community leaders and civic and community groups.
Once the new school is built in 2012, it will include an elementary and middle school wing connected by a two-story “student arcade” that will function as a dining court, student center and school square. The school is being located at the site of the former Munger and Chadsey schools in a thriving section of Southwest Detroit. Bright, sustainable classrooms will line colorful corridors centered around an academic commons area and teacher work centers. The school is designed to accommodate between 850 and 1,100 students.
