OPS - 156th and Ida High School

Omaha Public Schools will soon receive a new high school with a shared YMCA facility. The 315,000 SF school will sit on 72.88 acres of land with a capacity for 1,500 students. Classrooms will be designed as studios and will serve multiple functions throughout the day. The school design is based around being flexible and adaptive, giving it the ability to change as the education system does. The parking lot will accommodate approximately 1,000 vehicles and there will be space for baseball, softball, track and a practice field. Sitting two-stories tall, the school will also house administrative space, a cafeteria, counseling space, instructional areas, media and music, nutrition services, performing arts, skilled and technical science rooms space, special education, student services, visual arts and teacher-planning areas.

The joint YMCA facility will house a six-lane indoor pool, fitness center and other amenities. There will be space exclusively for the YMCA, exclusive space for the school and a safe shared space.
