STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) -- With Staunton City School Board elections fast approaching, one of the hot topics for the candidates is what to do with Robert E. Lee High School.
A study on whether the school should be renovated or rebuilt is winding down. It is projected that it would cost $40 - $45 million to build a new school.
Students say that the classrooms are too small, tiles are coming off the ceilings and parking is an issue.
"It's getting so outdated and it's going to cause like a health hazard if we don't do something in like the next 10 or 20 years," said Alyssa Goff, a student at the school, "It doesn't really reflect our student body and our building doesn't reflect our students."
A presentation will be held on options for the school on Thursday.
