A new addition to the Frisco CTE Center makes learning a flexible exercise—inside the classroom, outside the building, and everywhere in between.
Located in the district’s geographic center, the 44,090-square-foot (4,100-metre) space provides Frisco high school students equal access to a unique learning environment based on the STEM curriculum. Interactive group collaboration, brainstorming, and active learning are encouraged at the heart of the school in the collaboration zone, in the makerspaces and high-end learning labs, and in the configurable breakout zones with moveable, writeable wall panels. The learning stair promotes further informal learning and collaboration, while the large, multipurpose theater showcases student work to the community. As well, a versatile engineering workshop offers robotics, soldering, and woodworking.
This design we’ve created for the addition anchors the existing CTE Center (one of the top career centers in the country), connects the adjacent administration building and high school campus, and gives students a highly adaptable place to expand their minds and horizons.
