    Capital Project Update Video

    April 28, 2021

    Dear Pearl River School District Parents & Community, 

    We are excited to share an update on this year's capital projects at Pearl River High School that have both transformed and enhanced our school's learning environment! The construction that has been done in PRHS serves to both inspire and support our current and future students' success. The high school’s new and improved athletic complex; freshly paved roads and parking areas; updated fine arts learning spaces, art room addition, and updated art and technology wing; redesigned library media center; renovated science rooms and instructional spaces in the math wing; modernized and spacious main stairway; and major safety features and upgrades are only the beginning of what the district aims to improve! Our capital project work continues at Pearl River Middle School as we look forward to the full renaissance of our district’s K-12 buildings! We extend our utmost gratitude to our Pearl River community and for their support as we continue to make improvements to our district’s school buildings with our students’ prosperity in mind.
