The Kuna School District is beginning construction of its third high school at 7165 S. Linder Road in Meridian, across from Linder Farms.

Voters in 2017 approved $40 million for the school. It will sit on a 60-acre parcel on the northeast corner of Columbia and Linder roads that the district bought for $1.5 million.

“This will be phase one of a multiphased high school,” district spokesman David Reinhart said in an email. “Phase 1 will have space for approximately 500 students. The building will be expanded and programs added as our community grows. There will be space for new career and technical education including auto and diesel technology, engineering and construction and health sciences.”

The building is scheduled to open in fall 2020.
