New Classroom Construction
The six new classrooms at Medea Creek Middle School are made of recycled sea containers. Utilizing recycled sea containers, we saved 28,160 board feet of lumber, 155,960 tons of waste, and 184 tons of carbon emissions, a 43% savings over traditional construction.
Outdoor Learning Spaces
When you visit our elementary schools, you’ll see some new outdoor learning spaces. Our intent is to create more spaces around campuses where students can seek shade and engage in learning activities outdoors. Outdoor seating has been placed under each of these shaded areas.
Oak Park High School now has an outdoor art court, which features ceramic kilns, glass blowing, and other hands-on activities.
Maintaining our existing buildings is a high priority for our District. The exterior siding of Oak View High School was completely removed and replaced with new siding, trim, and paint. Siding was also replaced along sections of buildings at Brookside Elementary School and Medea Creek Middle School.
Renovations took place in lobbies of Medea Creek Middle School and Red Oak Elementary School. Additionally, student and staff restrooms at Red Oak Elementary School were updated with new flooring and paint.
A new synthetic turf field was installed at Oak Park High School.
The surfaces of the outdoor basketball courts “The Cage” and the outdoor tennis ball courts have been resurfaced.
