NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven’s Engineering and Science University Magnet school is getting closer to moving into its new home.
A new state of the art facility is being built right near the University of New Haven campus in West Haven.
Thursday, New Haven Mayor Toni Harp joined school and university officials for a topping off ceremony. The school’s class of 2016 was also there. Students had a chance to put their names on the final beam that will be used to build the new school building.
“This project is a great collaboration between New Haven Public Schools, City of New Haven, City of West Haven and Unviersity of New Haven. It embodies our core values in school change. When we work together we can do great things for kids,” said Garth Harries, New Haven Superintendent of Schools.
Once its built, students will be able to take advanced courses through UNH and receive college credits. Graduating students who are accepted to UNH will also receive a scholarship for as much as 100 percent of their tuition.
