Discovery High School is a new, ground-up facility delivering project-based learning to 9th through 12th grade students. This curriculum-based approach is new at the high school level in the Camas School District, and a continuation of our recent program for the project-based learning middle school. The new program centers on collaborative, integrated learning teams with a STEAM focus.

Many parameters that typically define K-12 design are not in place as they would in a replacement school to best accommodate this school’s curriculum delivery. Our design is based on the educational model of project-based learning, but can adapt to different educational delivery models, including traditional learning modalities, for future flexibility. To conserve energy resources, and promote student and staff wellness, sustainable design features include a focus on daylighting, and natural cooling and building systems.
