WILKES-BARRE, Pa. — The Wilkes-Barre Area School District has released drawings of its proposed new high school.

The architectural renderings show a sprawling high school building that would be built near the district’s Solomon Plains Complex in Plains Township.

The district plans to merge Coughlin and Meyers High Schools into this new location.

The district originally planned to build at the site of Coughlin in downtown Wilkes-Barre but that plan was shot down. These new drawings are just preliminary plans for the new high school in Plains Township.

    Really? With all of the buildings that could be renovated and rehabilitated, they’re going to fork out a gazillion taxpayer bucks on a “new” building? What an opportunity for political graft………..(face palm)

    Should we be impressed? It looks like every other K-12 public school built in North America post-WWII, except it has a fancy gabled front door and four fancy columns.
