San Diego Explained: A School's Costly Reconstruction

On this week’s San Diego Explained, VOSD’s Mario Koran and NBC 7 San Diego’s Monica Dean detail the Memorial Prep revamp proposal, its cost and why some folks don’t support it.

Memorial Prep for Scholars and Athletes is a middle school in Logan Heights. The school has low test scores and has been structurally deteriorating for years.

Last year, data released by San Diego Unified revealed that Memorial Prep is the school in San Diego parents avoid the most. But city and school officials want to change that. They’ve pitched a $100 million plan to tear down the school and rebuild the campus with both middle and high schools.

Not everyone’s on board with the idea, though.
