  • School Design Committee
    Humboldt Senior High School is in the design process for building renovations that are based on SPPS’ 10‐year Facilities Master Plan (FMP) to ensure its school buildings are able to meet the 21st century learning needs of students. A draft of the project work scope is also available (please note these plans are conceptual designs and do not necessarily represent the work that will actually be done to the school); in summary, the project will include two building additions:
    • One addition providing a "house" for the middle school students and relocate the main entry of the building to provide an identifiable entry adjacent to parking.

    • The other addition will allow the right-sizing of learning spaces to support the existing student population. Each of these additions will be three stories.

    • Part of the new main entry we will be modifying the site to provide an outdoor plaza adjacent to the entry for outdoor learning.

    • The project also includes interior renovations to right-size classrooms; co-locate Career and Technical Education and Fine Arts programs to allow for greater collaboration; and relocate administration services directly adjacent to the main entry for a safe and secure entry.

    • Break ground on project: June 2017

    • Completion of project: August 2020


    To help inform the renovations, we have formed a School Design Committee made up of district and academic leaders, teachers, students, families, community members and key partners. Through the guidance of a Steering Committee, the School Design Committee will be collaborating with architects and engineers on the concept design for the project. To provide input on the renovations, the School Design Committee will participate in four workshops. The goals and activities of each workshop is outlined below along with meeting notes where available. 
    Workshop 1: Where are we?
    Goal: To orient the School Design Committee to their charge and the framework of the FMP to date including the facilities Vision, Principles, Standards and the priorities and project scope identified for your school.
    Workshop 2: Envisioning the future.
    Goal: To provide and explore examples of what learning environments could look like to support 21st century learning.
    Workshop 3: What do we want?
    Goal: Program and adjacency exploration/validation


    Workshop 4: Synthesis and design validation.
    Goal: Conceptual Design Validation
