Ayers Saint Gross led the team involved in the design of a new metal-screened high school that is organized around a series of learning commons for group study and collaboration. Classrooms, science labs, and a fine arts studio surround the learning commons. A cafeteria on the ground floor opens to a courtyard. Prior to the design of the high school, our team developed a master plan that was undertaken in response to a growing enrollment of 500-plus. It determined the size and location of a new building for the high school and specified renovations to the lower school buildings.
