Batting cages are suspended in the roof structure for baseball and softball practice during inclement weather. An elevated walking track is used not only by students during physical-education classes, but also by community members before and after school.

Male and female locker rooms with restroom facilities are directly adjacent to the gymnasium. The adjoining lobby provides public restrooms and a concessions area.

The color scheme in the gymnasium highlights the school’s colors of purple and gold. Custom lettering ("Paoli" and "Rams") in the plastic bleacher seats further promotes school spirit.

An energetic terrazzo pattern in the lobby creates color and movement through the space, and depicts the school’s ram mascot.
