Because of the bond that passed in 2018 allowing the district more than $352 million towards new schools, the Omaha Public School District now has a new high school along with a shared YMCA facility. The 315,000 sq. ft. school sits on 92 acres of land with a capacity for 1,500 students from grades 9-12. Its classrooms, which are intended to work as studios, serve multiple functions throughout the day. The school is designed for flexibility and adaptability, giving it room to change along with the ever-changing education system.
Omaha Public Schools thrives in its public-private-partnership with the YMCA of Greater Omaha. This YMCA partnership with Omaha Public Schools will provide vast opportunities for the Northwest Omaha community. The YMCA of Greater Omaha and Omaha Public Schools are steadfast organizations in the Omaha area, committed to serving diverse communities and strengthening the potential of youth.
The joint 12,000 sq. ft. YMCA facility houses a six-lane indoor pool, splashpad, fitness center, gym, and other amenities. There is space exclusively for the YMCA, exclusive space for the school and a safe shared space.
