NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — New Haven officials are dedicating the city’s newest school this weekend.
Mayor John DeStefano Jr. and school officials plan to gather at the Hill Central School on Dewitt Street for the ceremony on Sunday.
The 85,000-square-foot school, which opened in August, serves about 500 children from pre-school to eighth grade. It cost just over $43 million to build and is powered in part by a fuel cell.
It includes a modern science laboratory, library and media centers. It also has a separate gymnasium and cafeteria connected by a stage and two playgrounds.
The school is the 36th to be built or renovated since city launched a $1.6 billion school construction program in 1995.
