Just before 2 a.m., police and fire crews responded to the school for an alarm.
Police say that crews found someone had broke into the STEM computer lab and vandalized it.
Detectives say that someone had started multiple fires in the band room. The sprinkler system was able to stop those fires but the room was damaged by the water.
"You know it's really disheartening. This is a $45-million construction project that is voter approved Nov. 11 by the Englewood voters. It's probably one of the most exciting things that's happened in Englewood," Brian Ewert, Englewood Schools Superintendent said.
The Englewood school superintendent said that there is serious damage to the band room from smoke and water. He said the vandals also smashed windows. The water damage in the band rooms is significant and flooded the orchestra pit.
Investigators say that it doesn't appear the three suspects are students.
