WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Construction of the West Lafayette Intermediate School is ahead of schedule.

That means instead of changing buildings between semesters, students will make the move in the middle of this fall.

The school corporation is planning a ribbon cutting ceremony October 10th, with the first day in the building set for October 16th.

The Superintendent said this school will help students thrive.

“I think it's going to be a great place,” said Rocky Killion. “I always say that the best environment is where teachers can teach and students can learn and it’s going to be a facility that is going to be low maintenance and more focus on instruction than maintaining the building.”

The intermediate school has been an ongoing project for the last five years.

The new school will feature separate wings for each grade.
