The 315,000-square-foot high school and adjacent activity center serves 1,500 students in grades 9-12. The high school is the first elementary or high school facility in the state of Missouri to earn LEED Silver certification.
Flexibility was the primary functional determination for the building. The use of operable partitions and spatial adjacencies make it possible to change class sizes to suit different teaching purposes. A model for education in the 21st century, the high school is architecturally distinctive with its sweeping curves and bold lines, as well as functionally effective with its flexible, utilitarian learning environments and wireless digital technology systems.
For the project, Citadel Architectural Products supplied 32,000 square feet of its Envelope 2000 Reveal (RV) System metal composite material panels finished in Seawolf Grey.
