Students move while school is renovated

ROCHESTER — James Monroe High School students will spend two years at the former John Marshall High School campus while their school is renovated.

The renovations will begin this summer as part of the $435 million second phase of Rochester City School District’s Facilities Modernization Plan, according to a press release.

Monroe High School on Alexander Street and the adjacent Children’s School of Rochester No. 15 on Averill Avenue will receive simultaneous makeovers. Work will begin this summer with updating Monroe’s infrastructure, including wiring and heating. The next phase will include renovation of the interiors of both schools, including modernizing classrooms, labs and athletic facilities.  

The programs currently housed at Marshall, which include All City High, LyncX Academy and North STAR Academy, will relocate to available district space.
