Shakopee High School
Work included new academic spaces and a new competition gym, work to the field house and commons expansion, south end east classroom wing additions and performing arts additions.
To keep the learning focus smaller, the district chose to move forward with the Academy model, which splits learning into six academies — Arts and Communication, Business and Entrepreneurship, Engineering and Manufacturing, Health Sciences, Human Services, Science and Technology and a Freshman Academy. The expansion allowed for the creation and redesign of spaces that serve the academy models.
“It’s a dynamic learning environment with not just classrooms, but extensions off of classrooms for independent learning and small-group learning,” said Scott McQueen with Wold Architects, the firm that is designing the addition, in a previous Shakopee Valley News article. “It’s a very kinetic environment with places to power up and places to collaborate.”
