The East Building Addition at Adlai E. Stevenson High School was needed for anticipated student growth. However, a visionary leadership team had a larger goal - to redefine the learning experience for students. The building addition is designed to be net-zero, achieve LEED platinum certification and Energy Petal certification from the International Living Future Institute.
