About the Project

This $68 million, 150,000-SF, Long Beach Unified High School project consisted of 43 classrooms in seven buildings for a school enrollment of 1,080 students. The buildings are oriented around an internal campus promenade referred to as Main Street, which acts as the school’s main circulation corridor. There is an administration building (with a library on the second floor), a science building, two multi-story classroom buildings, a gymnasium, lecture hall, and food services facility. Classes have high-tech commercial, industrial, and computer equipment, and students will work in spaces outfitted with flexible furniture, allowing them to develop skills demanded by today’s rapidly evolving and technical workplace. The high school is designed to The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) Verified guidelines.
