Last edition we showed you the student lockers from 1953.  Some things do change. The Science Center was rebuilt with grants from J.F. Shea., INC.,The Daniel Murphy Foundation and The Weingart Foundation. The Science Center (100 wing) houses Serra's Award Winning STEM Biomedical Science Program now in it's 6th year along with Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Sports Medicine classes.

The Science Center has the same lockers. However, as a part of the upgrade, they were painted.
