Organized around five distinct Personalized Leaning Communities (PLCs), the design places the library and commons at the heart of the school and embraces the site with minimal disruption. Within each PLC, individual classrooms open to a daylit shared learning area flanked by conference/breakout areas and flex spaces. The organization of the library/commons reinforces the relationship between learning and socialization while providing a variety of settings for individual and group work.
