Over the weekend, I drove over to check out the new Lorain High School. It’s quite beautiful; it’s hard to believe that it’s done and open.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that the view from W. 26th Street looked like this (below). Actually, it was May 2012.

Here’s the new view looking across Ashland Avenue (below). I just love the color scheme.
I drove over to the other side of the building later in the day for some photos as well.
I can’t express just how impressed I am with the design of the buildings. They’re stunningly modern and attractive, yet timeless as well.
I’ve got to admit – as unhappy as I was when Admiral King High School was torn down, I’m now excited for the students to attend such a first-class facility. Surroundings do matter, and I can’t help but think that this school will help inspire its students – and perhaps Lorain’s civic leaders as well.
