Betty Fairfax Opens New Building

Posted by Community Relations Department on 4/30/2014

The school welcomed a new classroom building to the campus, April 18 when the ribbon was cut on the 27-classroom “400” building, which will be home to science, engineering, journalism and yearbook,art and photography, business and student government classes, as well as a computer lab, an engineering lab/workshop as well as a fitness room and community room.  By Monday morning, April 21, it was already in use.  The building is the final piece of the Fairfax campus, which will bring the Laveen school to a 2500 student capacity.  The facility was planned in the original design of the school that opened in 2007, and infrastructure was in place for the expansion.  Orcutt Winslow designed the building to match the rest of the campus buildings, and CORE Construction built the facility.
