AURORA, CO – Students at Hinkley High School now have some new spaces to explore at their school. For the last 10 months, construction crews have been expanding the school by adding eight new classrooms to the north side of the building. The classroom additions also created a new interior courtyard for the school.

Hinkley will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the evening of Wednesday, October 9 to mark the official opening of the new classrooms. These new additions will provide an improved space for the school’s health sciences and engineering classes complete with cutting-edge equipment. Hinkley will be able to offer a more hands-on learning experience for its students through these new classrooms and collaborative spaces.

In addition, these improvements will also allow the school to increase its capacity throughout and make the best use of space in the building.

This project was made possible thanks to the citizens of Aurora who approved a $300 million bond measure in November 2016, which will make improvements at every school in APS and benefit every student.
