Scope of Project: The project includes construction of a new high school (Grades 9-12) located generally at the intersection of County Road 244 and County Road 223, both currently under construction, in northwest St. Johns County to accommodate 1,500 students as part of the District Five Year Building Plan. The high school has been designed to provide both traditional and non-traditional settings. Classroom areas will accommodate multi-disciplinary teaching teams, as well as more traditional same-subject groupings. Movable walls opening to a common work area will allow for flexible-sized spaces in this “house” design concept. This feature will enable teachers and paraprofessionals to work cooperatively to facilitate learning for students throught a variety of activities. The facility also includes state-of-the-art instructional technology.
