In order to determine the most appropriate building configuration (physical location and grade level), SHP employed a variety of engagement techniques (focus groups, wide-scale community surveys, design teams and concept testing), to develop an OSFC master plan that truly reflects the values of the residents of Circleville. The resulting $60M building program addresses the community’s desire for a centralized school campus.
Key features of Circleville High School include:
• Gabled roofs and grey brick, the new 628-student, 127,344 sf high school delivers a traditional face to the community.
• Academic areas that offer a higher-ed feel for the students.
• A consistent material palette and similar detailing blends the rest of the school, which speaks to the community’s value of less formal.
• A 603-seat locally-funded auditorium with state-of-the-art audio and lighting systems.
