Enterprise and Shasta High Schools
Scalable design offers classroom and lab space for multi-faceted learning.
After years of teaching a modern curriculum in outdated classrooms, Shasta UHSD needed to update quickly. Using a scalable GEN7 design, AMS fast-tracked large-scale expansions on two campuses, adding a classroom wing and two science wings at Enterprise High and two classroom wings, a science wing and a STEM/robotics wing at Shasta High. Designed in tandem, the projects added 12 new classroom/lab configurations at each school, customized to programming and delivered within a year. Open classrooms support collaborative learning; lecture-lab layouts provide space for dry and wet science, with factory-installed ductless fume hoods and prep rooms for chemical and equipment storage. Natural ventilation and outdoor access prioritize safety and IAQ, with large windows providing abundant natural light.
- Customizable scalable design replicates classroom layouts to save time and money
- High-tech infrastructure supports sophisticated equipment and digital devices
- Epoxy countertops and concrete floors are durable and easy-care for science labs
AMS maximized flexibility to meet the specialized needs of our science program as well as the general needs of our core curriculum in large, open classrooms and multifunctional lab spaces. Designing and constructing two projects at once saved us months of construction time, helping us get our students in new state-of-the-art classrooms as quickly as possible.
