The Keller Independent School District needed a school campus that would accommodate the growing population of young families. The number of new students didn’t warrant the district building two new schools so they opted to combine both middle and intermediate education programs at one campus.
The result is a two-story, 190,000-square-foot campus that will accommodate up to 1,200 students. The floor plan features separate wings and drop-off areas for the middle and intermediate school populations with shared core elements. Collaborative learning areas are located throughout the building, including in the courtyard between the two wings. Classrooms have rotating project walls that can be turned toward the collaborative areas.
This state-of-the-art facility is certified LEED Silver for Schools and incorporates energy efficient systems such as geothermal heating/cooling, daylight harvesting and solar-controlled sun louvers.
