A 164-seat amphitheater will have adjacent choral, band, and orchestra rooms. A state-of-the-art kitchen with a café-style dining space also can serve as a collaborative center for larger groups, and an outdoor dining area serves as an outdoor learning space.
Landscaping and strategically spaced furniture will make for a unique learning experience. A 7,000-square-foot learning hub provides ample space for research and studying outside the classroom.
To enhance the learning experience from years past, this design incorporates daylighting, outdoor learning spaces, large and small collaborative spaces, and classrooms with movable partitions that provide flexibility. All three floors contain grade-level classrooms, work rooms, and conference rooms, as well as large group instructional rooms.
