The project almost doubled the size of the school.

The new main entrance was relocated to the south of the school to become more accessible and welcoming to the community. The new entrance includes a secure vestibule for enhanced safety. Separate entrances were created for the main school entrance, the band facility and athletics center. Each entrance now has its own identity and more clearly organizes the campus, making it easier to navigate around the school.

Renovations included a new secondary entrance with a secure vestibule, as well as a renovation of the media center and cafeteria.

The additions were designed to maximize daylighting controlled through sunshades, low-e glazing and a redesigned computer-controlled HVAC system. Indoor air quality was maximized through the use of low-VOC materials.
