Project Description

The new Martin Luther King Continuation High School replaces the existing school at the site. The existing school was a 3,120 square foot relocatable building, built in 1977. The King Continuation High School program had outgrown the existing building and the existing building was in need of substantial modernization. A preliminary review of the building determined that the cost to modernize the existing building was not a cost effective solution.

The new facility provides seven (7) teaching stations serving the following curriculum areas: Math, Engligh, Social Studies, Science, Arts and Crafts, P.E., and Vocational. The classrooms are designed to house 15-16 students. Based on the projected student growth over the next 10 to 20 years, the new facility is designed to easily accommodate 120 students.

The building will be organized around a central multipurpose room. All of the classrooms will open into this central area. This multipurpose room will be the main student/teacher gathering space, as well as reception, waiting and all-school meeting place.
