Three-peat design fast-tracks a series of schools on a limited budget.
The Ceres Unified School District had an aggressive expansion plan: add two new magnet schools and the region’s first dual-language academy, built concurrently and installed back-to-back. AMS replicated the same turnkey design on all three multi-building campuses, combining quality materials, large view windows and efficient HVAC systems to create bright, comfortable learning space for students with significant economies of scale for CUSD. Each building features a custom detached metal roof with a steep pitch—a high-value upgrade that gives exteriors a stick-built appearance and makes interiors feel airy and expansive. The flexibility to individualize color palettes gives each campus its own identity within the District aesthetic.
- Pitched roofs allow high ceilings, giving classrooms a larger, lofty feel
- Front and side overhangs provide shade and shelter from weather
- Brick veneer wainscoting and colored metal roofs customize each site
