Eastern Hills High School

Fort Worth Independent School District - Fort Worth, TX

Student voices directly impacted the design solution that now exemplified their modern learning needs. Contemporary use of natural stone, wood tones, and glass now help to welcome students to a "homey" place in an urban setting. Students identified advantageous zones for improved circulation by demonstrating their daily paths. Security and technology upgrades were achieved. A new media center, a bright cafeteria, and relevant graphics rebranded the building as a place of pride for students. Following the students' requests, new graphics and the school brand were integrated into the design throughout the campus.

The introduction of collaboration spaces is highly valued and embraced by students who now demonstrate better independent learning. Enhanced security features, modernized fine arts, and additional classrooms also inspire active learning.
