Columbine High School
- named after Colorado's state flower - underwent a $15 million dollar makeover in 1995 and an opening ceremony in August of that year welcomed Eric Harris
, Dylan Klebold
and all the other students to a brand new cafeteria, student entrance and hallways.
It was the first facelift Columbine had since the 1970's.
Less than four years later the school would need another costly renovation to repair to the damages inflicted upon it on April 20, 1999. Below you can find photos and lots more information about the school before, during and after the shootings.
