OPENING FALL 2017
Village Tech Schools, a charter school serving grades pre-K through 12, is in the design stage of their new permanent campus to be located near Belt Line Road in Cedar Hill’s historic downtown. WRA Architects of Dallas is designing the school and Northstar Builders of Coppell has been selected as the Construction Manager.
The school at completion will comprise approximately 168,000 square feet of enclosed space in four separate buildings, and will serve 1040 students. The four structures include a 3-story classroom building for grades 3-12, a preschool for grades PK-2, a gymnasium and dining building, and “the Forge.” The Forge is the heart of the school and embodies Village Tech’s educational philosophy. It includes makerspaces, art studios, computer labs, and presentation and demonstration space. Here is where students from all grade levels will design and construct projects that relate to and illustrate their curriculum in all core subjects.
The campus will be one of the first projects in the redevelopment of Cedar Hill’s urban center and hopes to be a catalyst for further development of this area.
