Project Summary

Calibre design award 2018 international interior design association winner!

The new high school campus occupies two city blocks on 8.41 acres. The south side of the campus prominently showcases a 93,150 SF Classroom Building containing three Student Learning Centers, each with its own dedicated quad. Administration offices, indoor dining, and an outdoor lunch shelter, a set-aside classroom and a flexible classroom occupy the first floor of each 24,000 SF SLC.

The second and third floors house 10 general classrooms, a flexible science lab, and a chemistry lab. Completing the south campus are the school’s 15,100 SF library, 12,600 SF multi-purpose building, 36,000 SF gym, and a service yard. The north side of campus includes a 42,380 SF parking structure with 120 stalls on the ground level. The structure’s rooftop features five full size basketball courts and two large stairs that double as bleachers. A soccer/football stadium, jogging track, and instructional garden round out the remaining space on the north side of campus.

Fifty percent of the classroom building and gymnasium roofs, as well as a portion of the parking structure are designed for a future installation of photovoltaic arrays to power the school facilities.
