Fremont Ross High School is situated in the rural town of Fremont, Ohio. The high school is part of a plan that adds five new schools to the community, fostering academic advancement throughout the region. The design, striving for a LEED Gold certification, was developed in conjunction with the district and community to celebrate their rich history of excellence in the arts, athletics, and academics. A 700-seat performing arts center hosts school concerts and theatrical productions. The existing track was expanded to accommodate regional events, and a new 12,000-square-foot competition gymnasium seats 1,200 spectators.

To support Fremont’s strong economic impact on the region’s agriculture industry, the school features an Agricultural Career Technology Center where students can receive an industry-recognized credential for agriculture-focused careers.

Balancing the community’s traditional values while providing flexible learning environments was key in building programming. The classrooms are arranged in a traditional double-loaded corridor, and the corridors open to large extended learning areas, including outdoor learning spaces, a collaborative media center and project labs.
