Alexandria Area high School features open floor plans, daylighting, mobility, and flexibility. The design evolved from a large-scale public process with the community, students and administrators, resulting in a model 21st Century environment ready for the future of education and vocation. The strong community engagement process is paying dividends: business partners get directly involved in educating the future workforce and residents enjoy participating in community education courses and attending events and performances. The project was a Finalist for the 2015 James D. MacConnell Award.
Natrona County Public School’s Pathways Innovation Center and Roosevelt High School, two schools that share one building, was designed to engage high school students and provide innovative, personalized learning opportunities that will prepare them for success beyond high school—whether it’s moving on to college or high-skilled trade careers. The project has received many awards, most recently the Project of Distinction by the Association for Learning Environments (A4LE).
