A popular program at SPPS, Adams has long since outgrown its school building. There are currently two portable classrooms on site which the Master Plan aims to remove first and foremost. Additionally, a highly inefficient system of circulation, inconveniently located restrooms and over-programmed community spaces prove to compound the density problem within the school. Via the proposed Master Plan, the bottlenecks are greatly relieved with a few key areas of remodeling and additions.
Learning spaces are reorganized to take advantage of existing inefficiently used real estate by providing a new 3-story classroom wing to replace an inefficient 1-story addition, and reorienting classrooms towards natural light and with acoustic separations in mind. A new cafeteria and re-organized kitchen also open up the gymnasium for its intended use and school community gatherings. Additionally, the proposed plan reorganizes corridors, restrooms, loading and service areas to allow the site to run efficiently and effectively for the popular program.
