Our team engaged with school leadership, staff, and the community to re-envision the high school building and assist with bringing it into current standards with a specific focus on re-imagining the way teaching and learning are delivered. This project will transform the traditional high school learning spaces into modern, flexible environments to support the next 40 years of teaching and learning. Renovation of two full floors of academic space will provide new science labs, classrooms, collaboration and breakout spaces, and a library at the center of it all will serve as a collaborative hub.

The long-range master plan also includes additions of an auditorium, weight/fitness center, kitchen/servery, and a new cafeteria/commons.
