Harrison Hills New PK-12 School

Cadiz, OH

Project Description

Bringing all Harrison Hills City Schools students together, this new PK-12 school takes advantage of the surrounding hills and valley with views that usher the outside in for all to experience. The 216,000sf school replaces the district’s aging school facilities across the 400+ square mile district. With an exterior aesthetic inspired by the region’s rich coal-mining history, interior priorities vary by grade level.

Project Features

  • The Middle School & High School wings feature natural wood, bright daylit spaces and more refined finishes, meant to mimic higher education spaces that students will experience as they pursue further training and opportunities.
  • The Elementary School wing gives younger students bright and vibrant colors and brands each grade with a unique hue, improving navigation for students.
  • School-wide, the district’s design goals focused on putting learning on display with transparent wings and connectivity between classrooms clustered around common spaces and Extended Learning Areas (ELAs) by grade level. These ELAs provide ample group workspace for project-based learning while maintaining teacher supervision capabilities.
  • Flexible and fluid classrooms offer operable walls that support multi-class, as well as multi-grade level, collaboration.
  • The school has two gymnasiums – one competition-size, 1,400-seat HS (with LFI inclusions to increase size and amenities) and one smaller ES/MS-size – and an 800-seat auditorium.
  • A central event corridor opens to the High School gym, Performing Arts Center and cafeteria with oversized environmental branding and space to honor the district’s county-wide consolidation and long-standing school histories.
