Mayor Bill Finch and Supt. Paul G. Vallas, together with Gov. Dannel Malloy and State Education Commissioner Stefan Pryor, will celebrate the opening of the first new high school built in Bridgeport in 50 years on Monday, Aug. 19, at 2 p.m.
The Fairchild Wheeler Interdistrict Magnet Campus, located at 48 Quarry Road, is set to welcome its first two classes of students at the end of August. The new school features an advanced science-technology focus and has been built to exacting standards which should net it the LEED Gold designation from the U.S. Green Building Council.
