Master Planning|Futurecasting + Visioning|Community + Stakeholder Engagement

Seeking to implement project-based learning for all grade levels, Winton Woods City Schools engaged SHP to facilitate an intense stakeholder engagement process to develop an educationally-driven, operationally efficient, community-preferred facilities master plan. The planning team developed eight master plan options, which, with more engagement, were narrowed to three and then the recommended option, which completely restructured the district into two campuses–a PK-6 South Campus and a 7-12 North Campus.

With the help of the passionate community surrounding Winton Woods and SHP's meticulous educational visioning process, the state-of-the-art facility officially opened its doors in 2021 and the results could not have been better.
