Construction came with a lot of different emotions. Some are excited for the result while others find the process annoying. For the past year and a half, construction has consumed the campus during the building of the Schilling Center, which is set to finish during summer; however, the construction and portable classrooms will remain because for the Upper School renovation starting this summer.

US Principal Chris Hughes said, “There will be construction on Old Main that starts this summer and will last until around Spring Break next year.”

Due to this being the case, classes will be moved around throughout the year.

“English classes will be moved to the portable classrooms, and history classes will be moved to where the math and science rooms are currently…While this process may be long and hard, it is exciting to think that all of this will be ready soon,” Hughes said.

Sophomore Helen Bartlett said, “We’ve had a lot of construction, but it will be very fun when all of it is completed and we can use the buildings.”

While this process may be long and hard, it is exciting to think that all of this will be ready soon.”

“[The History Department] will move twice next year, but I don’t think it will affect the history classes…The only difference will be class location,” US history teacher Andrea Moerer said.

Renovations and construction have left many faculty and students anxious and impatient. However, with the Schilling Center open next year, and Old Main done at spring break, there is a new level of excitement within the upper school.

“I’m excited and all, but I don’t know how I’ll ever find where all my classes are next year,” said ninth grader Eli Conrad-Wovcha said.
