PCSSD holds groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion of Mills University Studies High School



Pulaski County, Arkansas – Finally, after multiple setbacks, Mills University Studies High School is getting bigger.

Wednesday saw the start of a much-anticipated building project that has been planned for years with a groundbreaking ceremony.

Ten more classrooms, a 2,200-square-foot arena, a new softball field, and ROTC facilities will all be funded by the $35 million development.

According to officials, the neighborhood, employees, and students will benefit from the enhancements for years to come.

“We want them to graduate with all the tools that we can provide them with so that they will be successful whether it’s a military career, whether it’s college or university life,” Pulaski County Special School District assistant superintendent Janice Warren said.

The district may be able to get out of a federal school desegregation litigation that dates back 41 years with the help of the new additions.

The construction is anticipated to be finished in time for the 2024–2025 academic year.
