Expansive, open ceiling classrooms, with special acoustics, are designed with leading-edge classroom furniture and technology to be ultra-flexible in use – each room can be reconfigured in as many ways as the teachers and students like. A first floor administrative suite supports the teaching staff and allows for an adaptable meeting space. Additionally, there is a flex room can be used for staff or student purposes, with a variety of furniture allowing different forms of interaction including counseling and team building.
