Preparing for community growth through state-of-the-art educational spaces.

The new 60,000-square-foot educational space provides a home for several unique programs offered at the campus, increasing overall student capacity in this growing district. The main addition showcases CTE-type programs, including engineering, aquatic science, floral design, business, and audio/video production. Complete with a state-of-the-art fabrication lab, production studio, radio broadcast room, business presentation suite, and aquatic science lab, this addition displays the impressive work being done within each curriculum path and engages the student body. Emphasis was placed during design on creating transparencies, which led to interior storefront glazing on most of the corridor walls to allow students to engage with their peers and encourage cross-discipline collaboration.

Dedicated social and educational outdoor spaces bolster student excitement and provide flexibility on this growing campus. In addition, a new 6,000-square-foot agricultural barn allows an already booming program to continue to support more students and livestock. Athletic improvements include a new multi-purpose gym for the wrestling and cheer programs, along with a dance studio expansion.
