The Houston Independent School District identified a goal to create a 21st Century high school to replace the existing North Forest High School. DLR Group’s design process began by working with the client to develop guiding principles through a series of visioning meetings with administrators, staff, students, and community. The outcome is a focus on small learning communities to create a sense of community by breaking down the larger population into groups of students sharing similar interests, and safety and security.
