The master plan facilitated a heightened awareness of the broader context in which the school exists. Our master plan recommended campus expansion with four additional general instruction rooms, including an innovation studio equipped for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) research and professional training scenarios. Our plan incorporated multiple large and small group spaces, furnished for flexibility and adaptation to differentiated learning styles and activities. Existing spaces were realigned to capitalize on shared resources and maximize square footage for instruction. Circulation routes were expanded and streamlined within the building and transitional nodes were created to accommodate club activities and spontaneous social interaction.
The Phase 1 implementation includes an 18,100-sf addition and 84,370 sf of renovations that will give a new face to the school, enhance connectivity to support services, and align the library with 21st Century learning. This project is scheduled for completion in December 2015. Subsequent phases will follow as funding allows.
