This new, 900-student Ninth Grade Center, incorporates an expanded, renovated corridor to connect it to the existing high school. Each house within the building contains de-centralized administrative offices to promote smaller learning communities and a more personalized connection between students and staff. Classrooms and corridors incorporate abundant natural light and student and teacher collaboration spaces to promote proactive, interactive learning through team teaching. The new Ninth Grade Center also showcases a centralized Administration Suite with secured vestibule at the main entrance. The center’s Learning Hub offers an open, adaptable and agile space to function as a media center, cafeteria and collaborative learning environment. The Learning Hub wraps around a centralized campus courtyard that integrates the Ninth Grade Campus into the overall site and gives students and teachers an opportunity for outdoor learning activities.
