High Schools

Today’s traditional high schools must be nimble enough to evolve into the high-performing schools of tomorrow—not only for their students and teachers but for entire communities. Our secondary schools are called on to prepare students with the perspectives and skills they need to succeed in the future. This looks different for every community. From career academies to small learning communities, project-based learning to International Baccalaureate, and urban to rural, our experience in designing high schools encompasses a range of programs and settings.

The key to our success is our dedication to collaborative planning and creative visioning with our clients to create learning environments that reflect their goals and passions. At Perkins+Will, we monitor and shape the latest global trends to ensure that the schools we design will serve communities for years to come. As the final educational home of students before entering college or career, our facilities act as crucial links to both of those worlds. And as a leading global design firm, we bring the support of a comprehensive and integrated practice to the educational community.
