The project almost doubled the size of the existing school.
The new main entrance was resituated to the south of the school to become more accessible and welcoming to the community. The new entrance includes a secure vestibule for school security. Separate entrances were created for the main school entrance, the band facility and athletics center. Each entrance now has its own identity and organizes the campus more clearly, making it easier to navigate around the school.
Renovations included a new secondary entrance with a secure vestibule. It also included a complete renovation of the media center and existing cafeteria.
The additions were designed to maximize daylighting controlled through sunshades, low-e glazing and a completely redesigned computer-controlled HVAC system. Indoor air quality was maximized by the use of low-VOC materials.
