New Construction and Major Renovation to the historic, 1928, 510,000 SF high school. The new campus will be a combination of modernized existing buildings as well as new buildings, designed to harmonize with the original 1928 building. The Swim Gym made famous in the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” will be restored.
At full build-out, nearly the entire 24 acre site will be redeveloped to maximize usable area for regulation size athletic fields, and to create a pedestrian-focused campus by placing parking underground. The existing Heath Avenue that cuts through the campus will be replaced by a new pedestrian plaza. New educational specifications will guide the development of innovative 21st Century learning environments, focused on learning villages and flexible common space.
The facility program includes three different theaters, a highly advanced TV studio, a robotics lab, an art gallery/welcome center, a fitness club, a planetarium, new gymnasiums and athletic fields, and an Olympic-size aquatics facility pool.
