The dramatic transformation for Hood River Valley High School creates an updated, innovative facility suited to 21st century learners. Part of a district-wide renovation project for nine different schools, Hood River Valley High School faced rapidly increasing enrollment and needed to update its aging, dated facilities. Opsis Architecture, retained for all of the renovation projects, provided programming and design services for the 16,000 sf new construction and 25,000 sf renovation project.

Faced with a tight schedule and limited budget, Opsis collaborated with the facilities director and school staff to develop programming and designs that maximized educational value and addressed the needs of today’s students. The creative process resulted in spaces that maximize daylight, integrate technology and give students the opportunity to both learn and interact with their teachers and peers. Included in the scope was a new and updated science wing, expansion to the music program, school-wide restroom upgrades, renovation of the existing gymnasium and improvements to the facade and major entry points.

Opsis collaborated with a solar consultant, the Oregon Energy Trust, and private entities to take advantage of ‘pass-through’ tax credits that funded solar panels on the addition’s south-facing roof to provide energy for the school.
