On Monday, April 6, Hiawatha Academies began construction of a new school building on the south side of the 46th Street & 17th Avenue block. Last year, the network of charter schools renovated and added an addition to the old Northrop School building to open its newest elementary school, Hiawatha Leadership Academy – Northrop. The new school building will initially serve Hiawatha Collegiate High School students before becoming a middle school – Hiawatha College Prep – Northrop in the 2018-19 academic year.
Construction is scheduled to take place this year from April 6 – Dec. 18. A Full PDF of the plan and the timeline is available for download here: Hiawatha Academies – Northrop Neighborhood Construction Update
