NEW FHS Building

Architectural Rendering of the new Firelands High School

Last winter a large group of community members, staff and students met to take part in a “Visioning” process to help determine the kinds of features that should be included in our new High School. Based upon that input, BSHM Architects has been able to establish the overall layout and look of the new school. The above is an architectural concept of the new building. Over the summer the architects have continued to work, refining the school’s design. They are currently scheduled to be finished in early January 2021. The District’s Construction Manager, Greenspace, Inc., will seek bids from sub-contractors starting in February.

One portion of the work, consisting of site preparation and underground utilities, has already been issued for bids. This “Early Site Package” will allow construction to begin this August. Fencing, signage and traffic flow have all been carefully considered to keep students, staff and visitors safe while coming to and from school this year.

In addition, the building has been assigned an address! The new high school will be located at:

Firelands High School
10521 Vermilion Road
Oberlin, OH 44074
