Circular and playful motifs create a unique experience as students move through the central core of the building. Key areas highlighted along the core include an outdoor art and science learning lab, a double volume media center, and an outdoor learning environment that serves as an extension of the media center, as well as outdoor break out spaces for core classrooms. Along the south side of the school is a two level classroom bar with break out collaboration spaces, all featuring natural daylight and views to the outdoors. Public spaces are located on the north side of the school and are positioned to allow for easy pick up and drop off and can be secured from the academic portions of the building for evening activities.
