Huntsville is getting a new high school.
Land has been purchased to expand the new Lee High School.
"The old building so old, need a lot of repair and work so we decided it would be better to build a new facility," says Huntsville City School Superintendent Doctor Ann Roy Moore.
They are expanding the current campus to more than 51 acres after purchasing additional land for a little more than $1 million.
The cost to build the new Lee High school is around $42 million.
$10 million of the construction costs is being paid by a tax package approved by local leaders last fall.
The new campus will take up 235,000 square feet .
There are plans to build a $1 million pedestrian bridge.
"We also want state-of-the art performance center outside because it serves as a magnet school that attracts students to the area of that school," says Moore.
