Cafeteria opens to rave reviews

The Colonial School District hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house on March 4 for Phase I of the Plymouth Whitemarsh High School (PWHS) renovation project.

Why now?

After more than 60 years of service to the community Plymouth Whitemarsh High School will be undergoing a major renovation with construction starting in 2015. The majority of the high school was built in 1952 and last saw extensive upgrades in the late 1980s. The three-story east wing of the building, including the swimming pool and east cafeteria, has not been reconditioned since its construction in 1961.
