South Plantation High School

Exciting renovations are coming to South Plantation High School! The SAC meeting highlighted the beginning of construction on the school’s new media center, as well as other renovation projects underway such as STEM lab improvements, ADA restroom updates, building envelope improvements, and fire sprinkler upgrades. In attendance there was South Plantation HS principal Christine Henschel and City of Plantation council members.

Principal Henschel discussed how the new media center will be more student-centered with a college and career readiness room to help students plan for their future. Additionally, the media center will have a teacher planning room where teachers can collaborate and plan their curriculums. The principal also shared with attendees how she works hand in hand with the project manager and contractors to ensure that student learning isn’t impacted.
