A new facility for freshman with amenities that benefit the entire high school student body.
This new facility replaced an aging ninth grade building that was located on a separate site from the high school campus. Designing a new building on the site of the main campus allowed for amenities to be shared with the existing high school and the broader community. This building is comprised of three major elements – an academic wing, a fine arts wing, and an athletics wing – all connected by a multi-story commons that provides connectivity to each major program component. Within the academic wings, lockers have been removed from the corridors in order to accommodate small group instruction. The fine arts wing features a 900-seat auditorium, rehearsal rooms, dressing rooms and a scene shop. The athletic wing includes a practice gymnasium, locker facilities and new 37-meter competition swimming pool.
