More than just a building, the new Pea Ridge High School will be a place where students will develop 21st century workforce skills in a true collaborative environment, in conjunction with business partners who represent some of the largest industries not only in Northwest Arkansas but also regionally, nationally, and globally. J. B. Hunt Transport Services, Mercy Healthcare, Tyson Foods, and Walmart are among the corporations who are partnering with the Pea Ridge School District to provide students with advanced career development opportunities that will promote workforce-readiness, college-readiness, or both. The new high school will encompass 134,000 square feet and was designed by Lewis Architects Engineers. The facility will be completed in time for the start of the 2020/2021 school year.
