Twelve (12) additional classrooms have been master-planned for future expansion. 

Building design goals included:

• Designing a building with functional spatial relationships. 
• Developing a facility that allows easy supervision of students. 
• Allowing convenient and secure non-school hours access to activity areas of the building.
