This compact 61,000 sq foot facility for grades 3–5 shares a site with an existing campus in a rapidly growing community. The project challenge was to design the new campus to meet current and future growth within approximately 10 usable acres without compromising instructional program goals. Designers collaborated with District staff and administration to create innovative solutions and to design a one-of-a-kind facility that will serve students in this community for years.

This project entailed repurposing an existing high school into a state-of-the-art junior high. In order to be good stewards, the Administration wanted to save as much of the original structure as possible. However, portions of the foundation were compromised, creating a unique challenge. Designers were able to save over half of the structure, incorporate 21st century learning and safety components, build in extra student capacity, and extend the life of an important community building.

The project’s scope converted a 1970s high school into a 4-5 campus from the inside-out without adding square footage or changing the building’s footprint. To best serve young learners, classrooms were reorganized by grade and all physical surfaces were replaced. Core spaces were relocated and renovated for greater functionality. Driveways were separated and loading areas were expanded and covered with extra-wide canopies to improve safety and traffic flow, while enhancing campus appearance.

Instructional goals for the campus included collaborative learning, ubiquitous technology, and adaptable, age-appropriate learning spaces. According to the principal, “The opportunities for our students are endless in this building.”

Curriculum alignment, student access to technology, individualized instruction, and excitement for learning has flourished in the new campus.
