Campus Serves High School and College Students in One State-of-the-Art Space
In Lee’s Summit, Missouri, located about 20 miles outside of Kansas City, a different kind of school campus welcomed its first students in 2017.
Dubbed the Missouri Innovation Campus (MIC), the school serves both high school and college-aged students (from about ages 16 to 30) who are pursuing accelerated degree programs, made possible by a partnership between the University of Central Missouri, Metropolitan Community College and Lee’s Summit R-7 School District.
“The freedom for students to flow back and forth [between classrooms and common spaces] was a big focus while designing,” says DLR Group Principal Kevin Greischar, AIA. “Students working at the high school level can peer in on things happening at the college level and start thinking about next steps.”
