Architect: ALSC Architects P.S.
In planning for this new Junior High School, the architect was challenged by the District's Facilities Committee to design a school that was student centered and responded strongly to its unique location in the East Wenatchee Valley. The massing and organizational concepts were designed to reduce the scale of this 150,000 square foot school and to relate to the Valley's basalt cliffs. Integrally colored CMU was chosen because of the variety of textures, patterns and colors available; thus responding to the texture and color of the basalt cliffs.
