Design Features

The school’s design separates seventh and eighth graders from the lower grades and provides these students with their own entrance. There are also staggered entrance and exit times and grade-specific lunch times to help organize the movement of students throughout the building.

Improvements Across the District

Bray Architects supported the School District of Beloit through a successful $70 million referendum campaign that funded improvements at 11 of their schools. These projects included additions and renovations at Robinson Elementary School and a new pool and fitness center at Beloit Memorial High School.
