High School Building - the academic facilities of the high school are planned to have state of the art classrooms as well as spacious common areas, patios, and balconies for individual and collaborative study. It is a two story structure with a central atrium which optimizes use of the acreage while creating a spacious interior environment. Following the style originally developed in the Lower and Middle school buildings, the design makes use of natural light and windows to bring the outdoors to the learning experience.

Site Plan - the construction site is conveniently located immediately across Wirt Road from the main campus. The proximity will simplify logistics and administrative functions as well as providing easy access for students and faculty to access each campus.

As can be seen from the site plan below, the existing parking facilities match nicely with the planned new facilities. The existing landscaping was designed to isolate the site from the street traffic and will provide a green screen for the learning environment.

Gymnasium and General Purpose Space - the gymnasium portion of the building is located at the west end of the new construction (Wirt Road side). It creates a multi-purpose space for the benefit of the entire school community. On a daily basis the gym will be a practice space for the sports teams and will host their home games. It will also serve as a gathering space for all school events and social gatherings.
