The State High Project will:
Update Aging & Deficient Facilities •Provide an urgently-needed updated facility •Incorporate efficient, sustainable, and flexible design
•Maintain our community's infrastructure to support property values and economic growth.
Why: Our nearly 60 year-old facilities do not meet current codes or ADA standards and have failing, obsolete mechanical systems.
Increase Safety and Security
•Consolidate all academic spaces into one building
•Greatly reduce traffic in and out of the building
•Provide more tightly monitored access points
Why: With two buildings on an open campus divided by Westerly Parkway, students currently walk through parking lots and across a major thoroughfare between class periods.
Enhance the Educational Environment
•Provide flexible learning spaces for project-based learning and collaboration
•Give a smaller-school feeling to our large high school and improve student-teacher relationships
•Increase time spent learning, decrease time spent between classes.
Why: The layout and design of the current buildings do not support current and evolving educational practices.
