Gulf Shores, Ala. – The City of Gulf Shores, in collaboration with Gulf Shores City Schools, is excited to announce the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Gulf Shores High School.

The event will take place on April 26 at 10 a.m. at the construction site located at 21656 Coastal Gateway Blvd, Gulf Shores, AL, at the corner of Coastal Gateway Boulevard (County Road 😎 and the Foley Beach Express.

The new Gulf Shores High School will accommodate 1,000 students with the opportunity for future expansion and provide state-of-the-art facilities designed for collaborative and hands-on learning experiences for our students while supporting the continued growth of our city. Students will be immersed in leading-edge technology labs for engineering, bio-medical, marine biology, culinary, music production and finance, as well as maker spaces, greenhouses, outdoor learning centers, and a broadcast studio.

Band, choral, art, and theatre students will hone their skills in dedicated spaces connected to an advanced visual and performing arts center, including a costume design lab, a set production workshop, a greenroom, and an auditorium hosting school and community events throughout the year.

A new Dolphin athletics center will be home to all sports, including two gymnasiums, tiered meeting rooms, athletic training rooms, an athletic performance center, and a covered practice pavilion providing year-round training opportunities for all Dolphin athletes.

The groundbreaking ceremony marks a significant milestone in developing our community's educational infrastructure.

Construction begins this spring, with the new school to be completed for the 2026-2027 school year. The project team includes Goodwyn Mills Cawood (GMC) and DLR Group for architecture design, Rabren General Contractors for construction, and Volkert, Inc. serving as the program manager.

We invite residents, community leaders, educators, students, and all stakeholders to join us as we celebrate this momentous occasion. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from key speakers, witness the official groundbreaking, and learn more about the exciting plans for the new high school. We look forward to seeing you at the groundbreaking ceremony as we embark on this journey to shape the future of education in Gulf Shores.
