The Long Beach Unified School District has dedicated $40 million from Measure K bond funds to renovate the Renaissance High School for the Arts campus. Renovations will include a new performing arts complex, building improvements and removal of all portable classrooms.


The following photos will give you a glimpse of what our new campus will look like upon completion. We will occupy the Butler site (located at 1400 E 20th St, Long Beach) for two years, beginning September 2016, while they renovate our current campus. We will be at the Butler site for school years 2016-17 and 2017-18. We will move back into our new home in September 2018.
