North Eugene High School Design Nearing Completion

Final school design process wrapping up mid-January

Design documents are nearly complete and construction will begin this spring on the new building for North Eugene High School. The North region’s new flagship high school will be the first new high school building to be constructed in the Eugene–Springfield area in over 50 years.

The North Eugene High School design team of Rowell Brokaw Architects and Opsis Architecture is quickly approaching the end of the design phase for the new school building. Final design completion is anticipated for mid-January 2021 with documents being submitted to the City of Eugene for permit review in January.

The latest design and building renderings for the new North Eugene High School are shared below. While renderings help envision and understand a design’s team vision, these images are speculative and the final constructed building may see some minor cosmetic differences.

The new North will be designed for safety and security, efficiency and sustainability, and 21st century learning including career technical education. The new facility is being designed in accordance with new high school educational specifications, district technical specifications, the 4J Vision 20/20 Strategic Plan, and informed by community input and feedback.

Activity at the school site will ramp up soon, even before final design completion. The old Silver Lea building at the west end of the school property is being removed to make way for the new high school to be built; abatement is currently underway and demolition will begin soon.

Construction for the new building is scheduled to start in late spring 2021. The project is on schedule with a fall 2023 opening date.

The new high school will be a high-quality learning environment and community asset now and for generations to come. After the new school opens, the current NEHS building will be available to house other educational programs.


About the bond measure: Voters in Eugene School District 4J resoundingly passed the school bond measure in November 2018 to fund capital improvements for 4J schools. In addition to constructing a new building for North Eugene High School, bond funds will be used to construct new school buildings for Edison Elementary and Camas Ridge Elementary School, expand Gilham Elementary School, and make other capital improvements across the district. Every school will benefit.
