SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Students at Mount Miguel High School in Lemon Grove will return to a very different campus this year.

Crews are demolishing a row of classrooms Friday to make way for two new buildings funded by school bonds.

This is the first new construction for the school in 60 years.

Mt. Miguel High will have a new administrative office building, which will include nursing and counseling rooms. The other building will house an auditorium and a classroom. 

The school’s upper parking lot will be covered with solar panels.

School officials say they will be able to start new programs with the extra space.

The 2017-2018 school year starts Tuesday, August 15.  The new buildings won’t be finished until next year.
