Redwood High School, Sequoia Union High School District’s only continuation high school, had been housed in a converted 1955 elementary school and portable classroom buildings. As the District was in the process of establishing Career Technical Education (CTE) programs at the high school, it became obvious that the current crowded and dismal facilities needed significant upgrades to match the reinvigorated educational programs.
To house the school’s new CTE programs, a new two-story classroom building includes five classrooms, one science lab, a digital media arts classroom and video production lab, a shops space and outdoor work area, and administration offices. In addition, Redwood High School also needed a dedicated space for sports, events and assemblies. To serve this need, a new multipurpose building was designed to include a gymnasium, Student Union, and food service facilities, and also included a state-of-the-art Culinary Arts classroom. Students now have a place to exercise, socialize and eat under one roof. Lastly, the building was installed with large walls of translucent glazing that glow at night to create a new image for the school and a beacon in the community.
