Project Description


Students greeted their new school when doors opened upon the start of the 2000-2001 school year. The new two-story school was built on the existing site.

A central circulation area showcases the structure. The entrances to the library and commons spaces are a focus on arrival inside the entrance to the building.

Students arriving by bus utilize a separate drive and entrance to the building from those arriving at the visitor/parent drop-off entrance area at the front of the school. The facility is designed to accommodate 575 students.
