Pequea Valley Middle/High School

The design reorganizes the educational program to focus upon 21st century principles of collaborative and independent educational design, sustainability and safe school design. Classrooms are organized into pods of classrooms incorporating open collaborative zones and small group instruction with localized support program to maximize instructional time. Program adjacencies were key in developing the building organization in a way that allowed for cross disciplinary collaboration between the science, agriculture, CORE, and STEM programs. The educational programs are extended onto the site through outdoor classrooms, a CORE construction yard, and an agriculture yard.
