Our building’s purpose is to create a safe, healthy, comfortable, energy efficient work environment where students can explore beyond the realm of their imaginations. There will be solar panels, wind turbines, and a hydroelectric dam to power the building and plentiful use glass to allow natural light to fill the school. As students, we know it is important to have a lighted workspace at all times. Our building will also support the needs of individuals. It will support the learning styles of all students and how they work in the environment. Whatever it takes for the students to have a satisfactory and comfortable time learning is worth it. The school will also connect to the community and create a relationship between the learning space and the real world. Our school will be safe. The types of glass used on the building and the materials used altogether will be high wind/hurricane resistant and structurally safe. The school will have high security with many security cameras and ID scanners that only let students and staff in and out of the learning areas of the school (second floor). Students in our school will be able to explore their interests and things they never would have before. We strive to make the school what would be enjoyable for us if we could create a school of our own.
