Dr. Dre Donates $10 Million To Compton High School New Campus Project

Dr. Dre is giving back to the community after donating a whopping $10 million to Compton High School to help aid the construction efforts on a new $200 million campus.

Once all is said and done, the school plans to name its new and improved performing arts center after the rapper, Andre’ Dr. Dre’ Young Performing Arts Center, it has been announced.

“I was an artistic kid in school with no outlet for it,” the Xxplosive rapper, who dropped out of school in his teens to pursue music, said during a recent ceremony held in LA. “I knew I had something special to offer to the world, but with nothing to support my gift, schools left me feeling unseen.”

He continued, “I’ve always wondered how much further ahead I might have been had the resources I needed in school were available. If I had learned more about the business industry, I would have saved myself [an] extreme amount of time, money and most importantly, [made] a lot of friendships.”

Dr. Dre actually donated the money back in 2017, but construction didn’t start until this year. And by the look of things, there are high hopes for what’s to come for Compton High School.

The new campus will have an academic building that can hold up to 1,800 students, a football stadium, an aquatics center, a brand new gym, and a track, with current plans to finish the project by 2025.
