The project took a blighted, urban area high school and turned it into "a smaller high school that would encourage students to graduate rather than drop out with little hope for the future," according to the AIA site. Views of the outdoors are available in 100 percent of the building.

Total project cost at time of completion, land excluded: $25 million.
