Keeping the Elmwood Park Community Informed of Our Construction Progress

Major changes for Elmwood Park High School have been made to the first floor and the school's library on the second floor!

Beginning over the 2023 spring break, crews began transforming both areas into new office and learning spaces. Construction on the major projects concluded during the summer of 2023 while smaller projects are still ongoing, with an anticipated completion date of December 2023.
