NIAGRA FALLS, NY — This city and its board of education partnered with Honeywell and the Hillier Group to design and build a world-class educational facility for the city’s 2,350 students. The site was opened to the media on Aug. 31, 2000.

It is the first privately financed, privately managed school construc-tion project completed within New York state.

“This school project, and all its surrounding amenities, is a perfect example of what we can achieve in this community when working together toward a common goal,” said Carmen Granto, school superintendent.

The project not only was completed without an increase in the local tax levy, but it allows the school district to consolidate and close its two former high schools, saving operating costs. For more information visit Honeywell at; Hillier Group at; or Hillier Engineering and Technologies at
