The completed Sam Barlow High School project will transform the 1960 – ‘70 facility to create true 21st century learning environments focused on STEM, CTE and Performing Arts programs. The community of the school will be brought together with the construction of a new Commons at the very center of the school. The Commons will be a series of varying scaled and distinctly programmed spaces linked together around a renovated outdoor courtyard. A new tiered “stadium” stair will provide a hub for informal student activity and events while linking the main level Commons with the new second level science wing.

The occupied site requires multi-phased construction beginning with the north wings of the existing school that will be replaced with a new science lab and classroom wing, a new main school entry and administration wing, and a new bus drop off entry to the east. Subsequent phases will renovate the existing classrooms, the CTE wing, the performing arts wing (including the development of new Band and Choir practice rooms), and renovation of the main auditorium. The site development will improve landscaping, parking and vehicular circulation for improved safety. A new covered stadium and turf field will create a significant addition to the school and a focus for community pride. The project will be a CM|GC process with construction beginning in 2018 and completion in 2020.
