Renovations at Las Américas ASPIRA Academy Completed
Newark, DE – A major renovation of Las Américas ASPIRA Academy has been completed by the Emory Hill Companies.
Construction on the building interior on Ruthar Drive in Newark will allow the school to accommodate about 250 more students, and the academy hopes to reach a capacity of 800 students in the near future. The renovations included brand new classrooms, two new science labs, new back entrances and foyers, a new middle school entrance and foyer, new acoustical ceilings, audio/visual systems and a new HVAC system.
Emory Hill & Company began the construction this past February and rapidly worked to finish so that the school could open on time. “We couldn’t be more thrilled with the construction process and the results,” said Greg Panchisin, ASPIRA’s Director of School Operations. “We are proud to welcome the students and parents back into a brighter, more vibrant facility and look forward to even more growth in the future.”
Las Américas ASPIRA Academy was established to provide students with a world class education that prepares them through a dual-language, project-based learning curriculum. The Delaware school is one of eleven charter schools affiliated with the national ASPIRA Association.
