Lamont: ‘Extraordinary’ new Norwalk High School is part of CT’s ‘secret sauce’

Mayor Harry Rilling and Superintendent of Schools Alexandra Estrella both described the high level of reimbursement as “unheard of” as they stood amid large excavators, mounds of dirt and metal beams at the rear of Norwalk High School, next to the turf field. With that reimbursement rate, Norwalk’s taxpayers will be responsible for $47.8 million of the $239 million project’s cost. The city’s commitment to developments in its housing, transportation and education creates a desirable hub in Norwalk, Gov. Ned Lamont said at the ceremony. The new school will be constructed where the Testa Field Complex is currently located. A new athletic facility will be built on the site of the existing school, which will be demolished, according to the project website.
