SEVEN PHASES OF ADDITIONS OVER THIRTEEN YEARS

WRA Architects provided bond planning consulting and bond program management for programs including a $38 million bond passed in 1999 and a $93.8 million bond which passed in 2002. WRA developed the district-wide master plan which addressed all existing facilities. One unusual component was the conversion of the existing middle school into a new high school. The high school campus was master planned for an ultimate capacity of 2,000 students and has evolved in multiple phases according to the master plan and comprises $23.2 million of construction, with an additional $5.8 million more planned for 2007. New additions to the campus include classrooms, an athletic facility with an 80-yard indoor football practice field, a 8,500-seat stadium, an 850-seat auditorium, tennis courts, outside practice fields, a vocational shop building, and a shared city-school public library, all of which have been designed by WRA Architects.
