Project Description


The design of a new K-12 school for the Harrison Hills City School District replaces all of the district’s education facilities. As one building for over 1,400 students, the design’s priorities vary based on grade level. The elementary wing will focus on visibility and transparency in education with classrooms organized by color for easy navigation for young students. The middle/high school wing will feature a more sophisticated, collegiate feel, with the aesthetic design inspired by the area’s rich coal mining history. All sections of the school will feature large Extended Learning Areas (ELAs) to provide ample group work space.

Key features include:

  • Flexible and fluid classrooms with operable walls that allow for multi-class collaboration
  • Two gymnasiums: one competition-size, 1,400 seat for high school students and a smaller ES/MS-sized facility.
  • An 800-seat auditorium for both school and community functions
  • A central event corridor that opens to HS gym, auditorium, and cafeteria
  • Large ELAs provide more space for students to work in groups while maintaining teacher supervision
