Clovis North Education Center

Clovis, CA

The Clovis North Education Center includes a full middle school and high school on a massive 96 acre site. With 14 total buildings, this was the largest single project ever submitted to the Sacramento office of DSA at that time. In total, the project encompasses over 600,000 square feet of structures including a 300,000 square foot academic building. Independent facilities are provided for both the high school and middle school including separate gyms, locker/showers, snack bars and classroom wings. The Concert Hall includes a formal and “black box” theatre. Full integration of structural systems into the architectural and theatrical intention was paramount to achieving the vision of this beautiful facility specifically developed for musical performances.
