The Junior High School’s significant outdoor feature includes a large common greenspace between the neighboring Paetow High School for student use. The Learning Green Space is intended to provide a walking path, outdoor learning gardens, and a teaching amphitheater. Several of the learning areas such as the learning commons and dining commons have views of the green space.
A main student circulation spine flanks The Green Space and represents an improvement from existing multi-campus sites, which are often separated by parking and driveways. The spine links the 9th Grade Center on the first floor to the learning commons, dining commons, fine arts, and athletics. The center provides stand-alone academic instructional and administration spaces for 9th grade students. The 10th,11th, and 12th grade classrooms are located on the westside of the first floor, while remaining science classrooms are shared with the third floor.
