Construction at Goshen High School continues as part of the district’s $30.48 million capital improvement project, approved by district voters in February 2017, that will create 21st century learning environments, address safety and security, modernize the performing arts program and auditorium and upgrade athletic facilities.

The approximately 15,000 square-foot addition at the front of Goshen High School will house four new classrooms, administration, guidance and support staff offices, a new main entrance with security guard office and control vestibule and a vault for Regents Exams.
The new main entrance will provide a security vestibule with a man-lock so that a security guard can screen visitors before allowing access into the building during school hours. The front entrance doors will be provided with access control devices. This means that nobody can enter the high school without first being screened and then “buzzed in” – an effective safety deterrent. The new vestibule will provide the additional benefit of minimizing heat loss.
Steel work continues on the 15,000 foot addition that will house a new centralized administration and support staff offices. This will allow support staff to appropriately service students while efficiently communicating with building administrators about student needs and issues.
The new multi-use artificial turf athletic field and lighting will be surrounded by an 8-lane track. The new field will provide increased playing time for student-athletes as well as weatherability and easier maintenance.
Gladiator Pride! The new multi-purpose artificial field boasts the Goshen Gladiator logo mid-field.
The new field house will provide public restrooms, two team locker rooms, a training room, storage room and concession stand. The 1,500-seat bleachers will be constructed above the field house, and there will be adequate and accessible parking for spectators.

The capital improvement project will completely overhaul the auditorium with new upholstered seating (to replace the original 40-year old seating), orchestra pit, doors with acoustical gasketing and an acoustic ceiling and wall panels to improve the sound quality, renovated sound booth, upgraded AV system, and new house lighting, rigging, controls and dimmer panels to improve theatric performances.
Work continues on the high school auditorium’s first-ever orchestra pit. The auditorium will be ADA compliant with a chair lift for visitors in need of assistance.
