HIGH POINT — Each day this summer, members of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church and School community watch as a long-awaited dream turns to reality. The new Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish Life and Education Center is well underway.
IHM is building the new 73,000-square-foot facility to expand to a two-track school (two grades per class) that will better meet the growing needs of the church and school. The new facility will include a spacious fellowship hall and cafeteria, as well as a gymnasium that will be used jointly by the parish and the school community.
IHM is one of the first "LEED for Schools" in North Carolina. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for Schools is being pursued by the school to be truly sustainable, providing a building that will perform better and more efficiently – ensuring that the health of students and teachers is protected and enabling the project to be financially profitable and economically viable.
