Prior Lake High School

Early in the process the group embraced the creation of a student/community commons to connect public spaces to classroom space. The design encourages a multi-use space for student socialization, overflow for events and student dining.

This three-story, nine cluster design provides classroom clusters in smaller groupings. Each cluster contains a resource area with workspace that creates a breakout educational space for the cluster and staff offices providing a professional staff environment while remaining accessible to students.

Prior Lake High School was designed with careful attention to daylighting, sustainable materials and life cycle costing. Classrooms were carefully planned to allow each space access to daylighting. In addition to classroom daylighting, the commons was designed with extensive daylighting through the use of clerestory windows.
