Whitehall-Yearling High School
Replacement high school combines traditional design with modern features to promote cross-curricular learning
A 120,500-square-foot high school replaces its 1950s-era predecessor on the same site. The exterior of the LEED Silver certified new school has a historic appearance, while the daylight-filled interior offers flexible STEM labs and breakout space, as well as classrooms outfitted with advanced technologies.
- STEM labs enable curricular shift toward cross-curricular learning.
- Corridor extensions support outside-the-classroom learning.
- Wings splay and corridors widen at ends to maximize daylight.
- Sloped ceilings allow light into classroom, while preventing glare
- Renovated existing gymnasium and connected it to the new building
- Traditional design features gabled roofs and large, repetitive window patterns
