Supporting the district from master planning through design and construction, SHP’s relationship with Carlisle Local Schools and the OFCC delivered this state-of-the-art K-12 school building, replacing the four previous facilities for the district.
- Moving from four separate, grade-level buildings into a single K-12 building brought the unique challenge of separating grade levels to meet community expectations identified during the master planning process. The combined two-story facility is separated into sections with the preschool, kindergarten and elementary school students at one end of the building, a middle school section in the central part of the building, and the high school on the other side of the building.
- Extended learning areas, flexible team-teaching classrooms and furniture selection that enable the district’s future-focused educational vision are key features that support the way Carlisle seeks to deliver education now and into the future.
- A locally-funded 500-seat auditorium is utilized by students of all ages and extracurricular backgrounds and is easily accessible due to the single campus blueprint.
- The district’s central office was moved into the new facility as well, keeping administrative efforts within close proximity to the 21st-century learning atmosphere.
