Park City High School

Park City School District

Park City, Utah

 

Park City High School is designed around an integrated curriculum concept that reinforces collaborative learning and teaching. The design divides the large facility into smaller populations utilizing “education communities" more conducive to current models of learning environments. These informal, central gathering spaces form a nucleus for surrounding science labs, lecture rooms and various classrooms that bring students and teachers together in intimate communities. Teacher planning spaces contiguous to these gathering areas facilitate collaboration, foster positive relationships and encourage a rigorous, relevant, student-based curriculum. Park City High School, located in Park City, Utah, has been LEED certified at the Silver level by the United States Green Building Council. VCBO Architecture provided planning, design, and construction administration for the facility.
