Here's chance to see old Woodward



The Cincinnati Enquirer

Alumni and the public are invited to an open house at Woodward High School on Saturday to tour the building before a portion of the school is demolished and a new parking lot is built in front of the school.

The school, at 7001 Reading Road in Bond Hill, is open to visitors from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Architectural drawings of the new Woodward school, scheduled for completion in 2005, will be on display.

Changes to the Woodward campus are necessary to make space for construction beginning this fall on a new Woodward building. The new building eventually will replace all of the existing school, which was built in 1953. Demolition of the main Woodward building will occur over several years.

Plans include demolition of Woodward's north classroom wing, which juts toward Seymour Road, and removal of the flagpole, grass and seven trees inside the horseshoe-shaped area in front of Woodward.

During construction, students will continue to attend classes inside the current building. The new Woodward is part of the district's 10-year facilities master plan.
