The classrooms, administrative offices, media center, music, art, skills labs and multipurpose/dining rooms are organized along a two-story corridor that guides students throughout the various areas and serves as a gallery to display their work.
The covered walkways and courtyard enable students to move throughout the school campus and gather safely within the school confines while interacting with the exterior, and staff can supervise all areas. The students have the use of play areas; a large, covered P.E. shelter; and game and basketball courts. Recreational fields include softball, baseball and soccer fields, offering students a superior athletic experience.
