New building designed to increase school-wide performance.
Two new stories of instruction.
Bloomington High School is a national demonstration school for the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program, which is a college readiness system designed to increase school-wide learning and performance. The program accelerates student learning, uses research-based methods of effective instruction, provides meaningful and motivational professional learning, and acts as a catalyst for systematic reform and change.
The new Math and Science Building is a two-story, 33,352 square foot structure, laid in an ‘L’ shaped configuration. It consists of the math and science wings connected by a bridge, elevator and stair component. The math wing contains 14 classrooms, each 960 square feet. The eight science classrooms are also 960 square feet each, filling out the science wing along with four labs, two prep rooms, and four study rooms.
Aesthetically, the building consists of a stucco finish with a masonry wainscot surrounding the entire base of both wings. The math wing has classrooms on either side of a central corridor, while the science wing incorporates a west-facing arcade on the first floor and balcony on the second floor. The roof is a hip roof with asphalt shingles to match the existing structures on the remainder of the campus.
