San Diego Explained: A School’s Costly Reconstruction

Memorial Prep for Scholars and Athletes [1] 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 [2]. But city and school officials want to change that. [3] They’ve pitched a $100 million plan [4] to tear down the school and rebuild the campus with both middle and high schools.

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

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