Project Description

This campus design mirrors the educational concepts presented in “Second to None”, the California Department of Education’s vision of the future direction for secondary education.

The design also successfully incorporates the particular requirements of the Merced Union High School District. The plan merges four academies (Science, Technology, Humanities, and Art) arranged around a central courtyard. Shared areas such as the gym, media center, cafeteria, auditorium, and administration building also orient toward the center.

This unique layout allows several levels of campus security, while encouraging public use after hours of the facilities.
