Classroom Building Added at Armenian School

September 18, 1997

To make room for its growing student population, AGBU Manoogian-Demirdjian School opened a new classroom building this fall at its Canoga Park campus.

Additional space was needed to accommodate 132 fourth- and fifth-grade students and limit class sizes to 24 students per room, said Vartouhy Kojayan, assistant to the principal.

The one-story building will house six classrooms, a faculty room and a copy center, Kojayan said. Each classroom will have a computer, television and videocassette recorder, she said.

The structure is the latest addition at the 6.5-acres campus, which includes six other classroom buildings, an administration building, gym, multipurpose auditorium and a playground.

The school enrolls 950 students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, Kojayan said. In addition to core academic subjects, students learn Armenian language, literature, history and culture.

This spring, the school expects to graduate its largest class of 66 seniors, many of whom have already earned college credit by scoring high on national Advanced Placement examinations, Kojayan said.
