21st century prototype school for the future.
The design team of Grace Hebert Curtis Architects and associate architects DLR Group were tasked with creating a technology rich, flexible and adaptable school that supports project based learning. Therefore the design for Lee High School does not follow a traditional school layout. The school consists of flexible spaces that can be configured for a variety of uses. Visual connections in learning labs and specialized spaces give students a reason to be excited about learning.
The school is designed around three specialized academies and a Commons Building. The specialized academies include Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Bio-medical and Digital Arts. Students and staff at Lee High School will be able to collaborate throughout the facility, providing opportunities for interdisciplinary and cross-curriculum instruction. The facility is designed to promote real-life experiences, allowing students to apply what they learn in a classroom in a specialized laboratory within their academy.
