In an effort to accommodate the increased student population, the educational program, technology needs and to improve the cultural environment at Lexington High School, HMFH designed several additions to the campus, totaling 15,300 SF, in addition to a 313,200 SF renovation. The campus was reorganized from a house system to a centralized organization that brings all students, in the course of a school day, to core facilities located along a central corridor in the main academic building.
Two new centralized student dining commons replace seven scattered dining areas and are designed for informal student interaction, with food stations replacing serving lines. A new centralized library/media center combines the student resources and the faculty professional library, encouraging student-teacher interaction, and is equipped with dedicated work stations as well as scattered data ports for laptops.
The renovations also included expanded science facilities, departmental reconfiguration to accommodate new educational programs, a new music area, upgraded arts facilities, improved locker/shower areas, and a new custodial wing.
