EVSC School Board Approves Bid to Build New Gym




              The Board of School Trustees of the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation tonight accepted the low bid of $2.8 million from Arc Construction to build a new gymnasium at Perry Heights Middle School.

Six local contractors bid on the new construction.

Perry Heights is currently the only middle school in the EVSC with one gymnasium which — for sporting events — can seat only slightly more than 200 with the use of portable bleachers and chairs.

The new gymnasium will have seating for 644, as well as Women’s/Visitor’s and Men’s/Home locker rooms with 21 double-tiered lockers. An elevator to service the gym and the first floor and new intercom system for the entire school are also a part of the project, as well as a new PA system for the gym. Additional parking spaces in the north and south lots are also planned. Total gross square footage will be 14,473 ft.



  1. With the long overdue construction, will this school become accessible to students and visitors with disabilities? Upper grades classrooms are not accessible and promoted students have to be transfered to another school to continue their education. This would be an ideal time to make Perry Heights accessible to all.
