The Lucia Mar School District celebrated the grand opening of the Central Coast New Tech High School today, located on the campus of Nipomo High School. Many community members, public officials, and local business members enthusiastically attended the ceremony, open house, and school tours.

RRM Design Group was hired by the Lucia Mar School District to design the Central Coast New Tech High School. RRM provided them with architecture, landscape architecture and engineering services. The campus is located adjacent to Nipomo High School and will eventually serve 500 students. The first class of 125 students is slated to open this August. The idea behind the school will be a new approach to education that focuses on communication, innovation, critical thinking and self-direction. Along with these skills, the school will have a strong focus on technology with each student having a computer.
