Renovations begin at Three Oaks Senior High
Government is pleased to begin $15 million renovations at Three Oaks Senior High, says Premier Wade MacLauchlan.
“Renovations at Three Oaks Senior High are another important capital investment in education in Prince Edward Island,” said Premier MacLauchlan. “With the help of these renovations, Three Oaks students will be better prepared for success after graduation.”
Three Oaks was built in 1976, with the addition of the nearby East Prince Career and Technical Education facility added in 2012. Renovations to the school parking lot have begun, with the bulk of renovations beginning in December 2016.
The entire school will be renovated and reorganized to meet the learning needs of high school students including renovations to sports fields and the addition of a new greenhouse. Upgrades to plumbing, heating, electrical and ventilation will also improve the comfort and safety of students and staff. Approximately 750 students currently attend Three Oaks.
“Three Oaks has been serving Summerside high school students for forty years, and with this investment, it will be a place where students can thrive for many years to come,” said Education, Early Learning and Culture Minister Doug Currie. “The needs of high school students has changed over the years and with these upgrades, students at Three Oaks will be equipped for the opportunities in today’s economy.”
The planning and design for the school was done by Chandler Architecture. APM is the construction manager for the project.
