    A few weeks ago, we took you on a FB Live tour of Casa Roble Fundamental High School’s new Student Union and Administration center, and today we have some professional photos by Chip Allen to share! Casa’s signature project includes an amazing student union space that modernizes the traditional library or study space on the school campus. The building also streamlines administrative and counseling services and includes professional development and meeting spaces for staff.

    Board approves Integrated Learning Building with a 5-0 vote

    The entrance to Del Campo High School will soon look very different as San Juan Unified unveiled concept plans for a brand new “integrated learning building” that will feature next-generation science and career and technical education classrooms.

    The Del Campo project is part of San Juan Unified’s high school signature project program that the Board of Education committed to following the passage of Measure N in 2012.

    Senior Director of Facilities, Maintenance and Operations Frank Camarda said the integrated learning building is a great way to enhance the career and technical education programs that have been grown at Del Campo, and bring next-generation science classrooms that every student will use to meet A-G graduation requirements.  

    “I’m just excited about it,” Principal Richard Nichols said. “It’s a great idea, and a great fit for the school. I’ve been really pleased with what the district’s done to incorporate what we’ve been doing here (with CTE programs).”

    A library/media center will be in the middle of the building, where students “can come to enhance learning with flexible furniture, technology devices, books and breakout group meeting areas.”

    Construction crews will begin to mobilize on Jan. 28, with a groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for March 5, 2019.


    San Juan Unified will be breaking ground on a two-story science wing at Mira Loma High School in March of 2019. This is a major project that will enhance the high school's already stellar science program.

    Next-generation biology, chemistry, physics and earth science classrooms will be complemented by a 2,066 square-foot flex space and outdoor learning features. This is a project the entire community will be proud of.


    • The new building will be built in the east parking lot facing Edison Avenue. Construction access will be into this lot from Edison and Norris.
    • Student and staff parking will be directed to the west side lot, near the tennis courts and other lots on campus.
    • Student drop off and pick up will also be directed to the southwest lot.
    • Traffic flow will be attended by school staff at pick up and drop off times.
    • Targeted for completion in Summer 2020

  • Groundbreaking at Casa Roble  


    Casa Roble Fundamental High School 

    The district's fourth signature proejct, a student union and administration building at Casa Roble Fundamental High School broke ground Nov. 8, 2018.



    The Board of Education voted unanimously on 2/24/15 to accept staff's recommendation of a four-phase Measure N Signature Project program. Work will begin immediately with construction of a next-generation science wing at Bella Vista and a 350-seat theater at Rio Americano. The full four-phase schedule is as follows:
    Phase 1: Bella Vista science wing & Rio Americano music performance center
    Phase 2:  Encina community center & El Camino performing arts center
    Phase 3: Casa Roble student union & Mira Loma stadium
    Phase 4: San Juan High 21st century classrooms, Del Campo 21st Century library/theater & Mesa Verde stadium
    All projects under the accepted plan will be complete by Dec. 2019. Click on the links below to view staff's Power Point presentation on Signature Projects and Exhibit A from the board packet (Note: Documents updated on 2/25/15).


    The San Juan Unified School District completed Measure N Signature Project Forums at all nine comprehensive high schools between the dates of Sept. 30 and Nov. 5. Each forum was advertised in each high school and feeder school community in an effort to attract as much public participation as possible. 

    Each forum consisted of the same format: a short presentation by staff, a small group breakout discussion about three previously identified Signature Project ideas, and then a question and answer period. (For reports on each individual high school forum, please click on the Forum Reports tab below).

    With each forum now complete and all public input taken into account, the district’s facilities staff is moving forward with finalizing project budgets and plans. Then, staff will hold further discussions with all nine high school principals, the Superintendent’s cabinet, and the Board of Education.

    A full recommendation for all nine Signature Projects, which will include a loading order and timetable for each project, will be made to the Board of Education in the first quarter of 2015.

    The San Juan Unified community pledged its support to the district’s vision of bringing all schools up to 21st century standards by approving Measure N, a $350 million facilities bond, in 2012. District leaders have identified $2.4 billion in school improvement needs, and Measure N will help the District begin addressing those needs.

    Signature projects
    San Juan Unified is dedicating a significant portion of Measure N to build signature projects at each of the district’s comprehensive high schools. Project ideas throughout the district have included classroom wings, football fields with all-weather tracks, science buildings and performing arts centers.
