OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A new high school is breaking ground near 60th and L, and the city wants to celebrate.

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held at 10:00 at the location to signify the new high school. The Omaha World-Herald reported back in December 2018 that two new high schools will open in the city. A school at 156th and Ida will join the location at 60th and L. Both schools are scheduled to be ready for the 2022-23 school year.

The new school will be two stories with 1,500 students at the site of the old Ryan High School. The lower level of the school will house administrative offices, two gyms, weight rooms, a collaboration room, and JROTC.

The main level of the facility will house classrooms, administrative offices, athletic event areas, and the cafeteria among other things. OWH adds that these two new schools are the first high schools the district has opened since the 1970s.
