Alhambra's Century High School gets a new building

When school starts next week, students at Alhambra's continuation school, Century High, will head to a brand new multi-million dollar new building, The Pasadena Star-News reports.

The continuation school just completed a $2.8 million renovation on its campus at 20 S. Marengo Ave. After 14 months of construction, the campus will officially open its doors to about 310 students on Aug. 30.

Thanks to the 2004 General Obligation Bond Measure C, Century went from a few bungalows to a two-story campus that includes nine classrooms, a new science lab, an expanded art room and campuswide wireless Internet.

Continuation schools provide an alternative for students older than 16, who are not making sufficient progress toward graduation. 

"Students usually come to us if they are credit deficient, have behavioral issues or are not getting what they need from a (traditional) high school," the school's new principal, Duane Russell, told the Star-News. "The teaching is still the same, but we provide more additional individual attention." 

Century, which was recognized as a "model continuation school" last year, provides a focus on career education, counseling and flexible schedules.
