Springfield Township High School, School District of Springfield Township
The Springfield School District, after evaluating a number of options that would provide a high school campus complex that could serve the community for the next 50 years, elected to move forward with new construction on the southeast corner of an existing approximately 25 acre campus. Schradergroup, in association with Perkins+Will, will provide programming, planning and design services for a new high school anticipated to encompass approximately 195,000 SF, able to immediately serve over 1,200 students, and be expandable to accommodate approximately 1,450.
The District is implementing an Academy Model in the high school that will provide offerings in Art, Business, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), Humanities and Liberal Arts, and the programming and design for the new facility must be reflective of an understanding of the model. Beyond the actual high school facility, the project additionally will entail the design and construction of new site amenities, including fields, parking, and a stadium complex. Also included will be a new maintenance facility and the demolition of the existing high school, Administration Building, and any related structures.
