Board Approves Land Purchase for New Hinckley, Sharon Elementary Schools

The Highland Board of Education approved the purchase of two land parcels at the June 25 regular meeting -- one for the new Hinckley Elementary School and the other for the new Sharon Elementary School. Both properties are located on Ridge Road.

The board approved spending $800,000 for the vacant Hinckley property (21.7 acres), located approximately one-half mile north of Route 303; and $645,519 for the Sharon property (48 acres), located approximately one mile south of Sharon Circle (the former Western Reserve Golf Course).

Update on New Building Project

It is hard to believe that another school year is coming to a close. It has been a great year of learning and growing at the Highland Schools!

We are especially excited that our parents and community supported a bond issue to build three new elementary schools and renovate Highland Middle School, as well as an operating renewal levy. Thank you!

Since January, our teachers, administrative team, construction managers and architects have been working diligently on plans, possible land acquisition and designs for the new buildings. See timeline below.
