Warren County SD Eisenhower Middle-High School Renovation
Integrating the middle school into the existing high school building through the sustainable recycling of this aging facility has enabled the community to address its shrinking population in an exciting yet fiscally responsible manner. The renovation of the 123,000 square foot facility is enhanced with a new 38,000 square foot addition and a reorganization of the interior spaces to create grade level pods to meet the Educational Specification defined by school administrators and the community.
123,000 SF Renovation
Separation of the middle school from the high school was accomplished by locating middle school academics into a distinct two story wing. The dining commons, library, fine arts, gymnasium, 600-seat auditorium and music rooms are positioned to enable access for evening and community events.
Site improvements include separation of bus and auto traffic along with a new secure bus/student entrance that doubles as the entrance for community use of the gymnasium. During the school day visitors may only enter through a new secure administration vestibule.
The restructured learning environment, enhanced interior finishes, skylights, and updated building infrastructure have created an atmosphere that has initiated new attitudes, learning initiatives, and student involvement.
