PROJECT Details

The Farmington High School project began during the Summer 2022 and consists of building from the ground up a brand new, three story, 236,000+SF Farmington High School that will replace the old school on the same campus.

The new high school will be efficient, compact and organized in Learning Communities. Each Learning Community consists of classrooms and science rooms that open to a break-out space and contain additional small and large group teaming areas, and a central faculty workroom. The north-south axis of the school connects the main entrance, facing the drop-off loops, to the rear staff entrance. It provides wide circulation and clear sight-lines separating the core educational classrooms to the east from the larger group educational spaces (auditorium, music rooms, gymnasium) to the west. Program spaces in the high school include a multimedia production studio dubbed the Edge Studio, visual and performing arts, career and technical and science and technology programs.

The design highlights an energy efficient building with fewer entry points, new Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning systems, durable finishes throughout, ample circulation space and extensive natural daylighting. The design is sensitive to the surrounding neighborhood and allows for secure public access for after hour events.
The existing high school is set to be demolished in Summer 2024. The new school will be occupied in Fall 2024.
