Columbine High School banner

for his own webpage, seen here. The Columbine banner is no longer hosted at Columbine High School's present-day site.

Columbine High School - named after Colorado's state flower - underwent a $15 million dollar makeover in 1995. An opening ceremony in August of that year welcomed Eric Harris, Dylan Klebold, and the rest of the student body 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 information about the school before, during, and after the tragic shootings.
