The 16-classroom high school represents a new model for learning, with unique amenities including a black box theatre, innovation lab/maker space, art studio with kiln, open concept learning seminar spaces, amphitheater-style grand stair, collaborative media space, and open ceilings throughout. The school also includes an administration area, a wood-floored gym, locker rooms, fitness rooms, music rooms, and a full dining area.
