Architect Wishes To Build New High School In Cumberland

CUMBERLAND, Md. (AP) — An architect is recommending construction of a new Allegany High School to replace an 86-year-old building in Cumberland.

The study by Calverton-based Grimm & Parker Architects was released at an Allegany County school board meeting on Tuesday.

It comes 15 months after a local committee recommended against merging Allegany High and Fort Hill, the city’s other public high school.

The Cumberland Times-News reports that the study concluded the local cost of a new high school could be anywhere from $9 million to $16 million.
