Building Our Future - Grand Opening Celebration

Beginning in the fall of 2015, the Upper Arlington community came together to craft a long-term facilities master plan for the district’s aging schools. This August, the entire Upper Arlington community will celebrate the completion of these projects - on budget and on schedule - for the start of the 2021-2022 school year!
