Kodiak High School Renovation and Addition
Kodiak High School serves as the sole high school for the Kodiak Island community in Alaska. Following graduation, many of its students remain on the island to enter its leading industries of commercial fishing, healthcare, aerospace, and the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard.

The existing Kodiak High School was a confusing maze of additions and renovations to the 1960s and 1970s buildings. DLR Group’s design provides a 21st Century modernization that includes three types of spaces to link, gather, and learn. Link spaces tie together zones throughout the building. Gather spaces function as community destinations such as the library, dining commons, and fitness lounge. Learn spaces are used for educational delivery, featuring ample glazing to encourage connectivity between learning spaces.
