GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - The first stages of demolishing and rebuilding Gulfport High School are beginning this week.

The $42 million project is slated to take about three years but the end results will include a new fieldhouse for all sports, new academic buildings and a new fine arts complex. The school was built in the 1960s and has seen some updates since, including a ninth-grade facility and a new gym added in the mid-90s. But this will be the largest update since the school opened.

In total, David Fava, the director of Career and Technical Education told The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/1AZza0Y) about 80 percent of the campus will be newly built.

The project will extend over several school years but students are expected to remain on the same campus during that time.
