HMFH’s design for the new Dover High School & Regional Career Technical Center graces the cover of AIA New Hampshire’s Forum magazine, blending vocational and traditional education and bringing pride to its community.
The theme of the Spring 2020 issue of AIA New Hampshire’s Forum magazine is “Education”—and the cover story is none other than HMFH’s Dover High School & Regional Career Technical Center. Today’s global economy and job market require “a workforce with critical thinking skills and the ability to compete in a rapidly changing world.” Integrating academics with CTE, Dover High School equips its students to meet that challenge.

Lead designer and project manager Tina Stanislaski of HMFH Architects in Cambridge, MA worked closely with Principal Peter Driscoll and his team to transform Dover’s vision of its new high school into reality. She explains, ‘The STEAM wing, which locates the art, science, welding, and building technology spaces near each other, is just one example of the benefits of intermingling disciplines throughout the building’s layout. An adjacent exterior workyard and an open interior Learning Commons provide additional venues for art, science, and career-tech students to pursue shared projects and allow teachers to collaborate across disciplines.’
