The $16.5 million renovation of Denby High School in 2011 included construction of a new commons area for student dining and other activities as well as a major renovation to restore school’s original 1930s auditorium. A portion of the existing dining area was repurposed to provide adequate kitchen, serving, and delivery / receiving areas. The remaining space was renovated to create a new multi-purpose area designed for use as a student dining room and as a meeting space for student clubs and organizations. The media center was repurposed to include two computer labs, a small group room, and a team room. Classrooms were modernized and upgrades were made to the lighting, electrical and mechanical systems. A new building security entrance was added to incorporate state-of-the-art security technologies and enhance student safety. Exterior upgrades include a new roof and new decorative fencing at the front of the building.
