Warren Easton High School opens 9th grade academy
School is back in session for most students as of last week. And for the first time New Orleans’ has a standalone 9th grade academy located at Warren Easton Charter High School. The 9th grade annex was built across the street from the school’s main campus in a long-abandoned business school building. The school previously used the main campus’ third floor for all ninth-grade classrooms, but now they have their own space to better prepare students as they transition into high school.
Moses Engineers provided MEP designs for Warren Easton’s 9th grade annex including the HVAC system, plumbing system, fire protection and electrical systems. We were thrilled to work on this project with all other firms involved including Manning Architects and the McDonnel Group. The new annex has welcomed a freshman class of 350 students — 100 more than typical. This expansion to Warren Easton Charter High School will allow the school to grow by 40% according to school officials.
