For this project, we focused on creating the feel of a small community, a student-focused campus, and ensured that it would be adaptable over time.

SMALL LEARNING COMMUNITIES: The campus promotes a genuine sense of belonging among students by providing inspirational and social spaces where students are empowered to succeed. Each individual school is self-contained, housing large gathering spaces, media resources, administration, counseling services and food services. 

STUDENT-FOCUSED CAMPUS: The large 2,400 student population was organized into smaller cohorts, each with its own distinct identity and degree of autonomy. This allows students to learn with a smaller group of peers during their time.  

ADAPTABILITY OVER TIME: The facility supports the existing instructional process and easily adapts to changing curricular delivery models.
