Construction Begins On FlexTech Building Addition

June 9, 2016

A groundbreaking ceremony in Brighton yesterday kicked off the expansion project for FlexTech High School. The estimated $1.8 (m) million dollar project will be financed by property owner and building developer Steve Varilone, who plans to sell the property to the school upon the expansion’s completion. Varilone says selling the property will be “bittersweet”, but that if he’s going to sell it to anybody it would be the school. FlexTech, a public charter school, opened in the fall of 2011 and had only about 80 students enrolled during its first year. In the last five years, the project-based learning high school has grown quickly and now boasts a full capacity of 280 students. School leader Ryan Gillis tells WHMI the expansion will provide additional classrooms and instructional space. Gillis says it’s exciting to know that the school may not have to wait list students or at least not as many once they have the extra room. The 13,000-square foot addition will nearly double the size of the current building and is expected to be completed by January. (DK)
