About the NEW I.C. Norcom High School

Construction of the $37.4 million project, built on a 28-acre site, was started Aug. 25, 1995, and will open next week.

With 280,000 square feet and room for 1,800 students, this school replaces the old I.C. Norcom at the corner of Turnpike Road and Frederick Boulevard.

Located between London Boulevard and High Street, the site includes six tennis courts, a baseball field, and a practice field. The football stadium seats 5,000 spectators.

The school was originally scheduled to open in September of 1997, then it was rescheduled for January 1998. Builders were granted additional time due to inclement weather and changes in the contract.
