Hayfield Secondary School
The modernized facility converted the original “open” plan school with multiple media centers into a new state of the art, technology driven school with fixed walls and flexible use multi-purpose, resource, and lecture spaces. The 7th and 8th grades are reorganized into a middle school facilitating team teaching. The middle school area is located in close proximity to the shared departmental and activity spaces to allow middle school students direct access to these areas. The high school follows a departmental organization with collaborating departments placed together to facilitate blended instruction. A new science department with new laboratory and lecture space was added addressing the previous lack of laboratory space. Guidance is divided between the middle and high school and located in those respective areas to provide easy and direct support to students.
