This project involved the conversion and expansion of the existing 9-12 high school to accommodate 7th and 8th graders. The overall scheme called for the renovation of core spaces in existing building–gymnasium, auditorium, cafeteria and library–with the addition of two “C”-shaped wings on either side. New configuration provided the Middle School students with their own zone within the larger building where they were able to transition smoothly to the new building with managed interaction with the older students. The south addition provides new science labs and classroom facilities for the High School students. Centrally located core spaces provide clear “shared space” operations between both the 7th and 8th graders and high school students. This shared operational configuration provided greater functional efficiency within the building and has saved significant operational costs over the first few years that the new facility has been open. This project received LEED certification in 2017.
