Demolition of Lynwood High School Imperial Campus Building Expected to be Complete in February

Demolition crews charged with taking down the primary classroom building at the Lynwood High School Imperial Campus are moving swiftly and on time, with the structure expected to be fully demolished by mid-February.

The structural demolition of Building G began in November. The work to prepare the soil for the building’s foundation is scheduled to begin later this summer. Once the foundation work is complete, construction of the new 175,000-square-foot building will begin.

The central building will feature a culinary arts kitchen as well as medical training and art facilities with specialized equipment and technology. The softball and baseball fields will also be redesigned and rebuilt to enhance athletic and physical activities.

The restored campus – which has been shuttered since June 2020 when a portion of ceiling soffits collapsed due to major structural failures – is expected to welcome back students and staff in Fall 2027.

“The new and improved campus will provide generations of Lynwood students with advanced resources, increased opportunities for success and a safe learning environment where they will be empowered to achieve,” said Assistant Superintendent of Business Services Gretchen Janson, Ed.D.

Lynwood Unified remains committed to transparency throughout the reconstruction process. To stay updated and view project details, visit
