PARMA, OH - The Parma city school district is proposing a new $194.5 million high school be built on the existing site of Parma High School on West 54th Street. The district does not have a bond issue number yet, but once placed on the November ballot it will be for 3.95 mills, costing residents $11.53/month/$100,000 of their property value.
The city's Facebook page says the red brick and clock tower are direct references to the "Queen of High Schools" heritage, as this is the same location for their singular campus. The southwest corner of the school contains a glass front where they will locate their cosmetology and culinary programs. The wings that jut toward the north (Longwood) portion of the campus are unique to grade levels.
The ninth and tenth grades would have their own wings with separate entrances, dining areas, and office spaces for supporting services.
