This award-winning new construction school provides students with a fun, flexible, and immersive learning environment. The L-shaped two-story building houses 33 classrooms, administrative spaces, flexible learning areas, a gymnasium, two story stepped presentation space, and impressive media center. The energy efficient building has a high performing envelope and utilizes innovative MEP systems. Classrooms have tunable white LED lighting that adjusts color temperature to elicit different responses to aid in student focus and behavior. A 6-acre solar field adjacent to the school is anticipated to offset 50%-80% of energy costs.
