Project Summary

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.
