Lakeville South High School

A primary goal in designing a second high school to serve the Lakeville School District included enhancing the potential of student, staff, and community collaboration. The solution addresses this in several ways. An active commons for social activities complements the passive commons for learning resources and lockers, while a central core hosts three levels of interactive services, including administration, student services, and a multi-media center. An upper level entrance provides community access to the walking track, a dance and aerobics studio, and a fitness center as well as meeting rooms and lecture space.

Research into Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences informed the academic spaces to support and celebrate the variety of learning styles; Learning Resource Areas off the Central Core create collaborative, interdisciplinary spaces for staff to focus on students’ needs, and a 1,000-seat auditorium and music suite champion the district’s dedication to fine arts.
