Location Kingsville, Texas
Project Summary The 166,434 s.f. high school for Kingsville Independent School District embraces the local Spanish tradition in the area while providing innovative programmed spaces. Ninth through twelfth grade students and faculty have access to new classrooms, computer and science labs, kitchen/cafetorium, a media center, lecture hall, CATE labs (Center for Adaptive Technology in Education), and administrative offices. The project was designed for 1240 students and encourages the students to partake in collaborative learning by providing both informal and formal meeting spaces throughout the school. The multi-color masonry facade is supported by a concrete column and steel bar joist and metal deck structure covered with a pre-finished standing seam roof. Translucent areas, vents and clerestories in the roof structure encourage natural light to fill the building along the main corridor. All A&E services were provided by LWA, LP.
