      GLHS PHASE TWO SITE PLAN OPTIONS   .

As we continue working through our Phase II projects, development of the site plan and floor plan for the new Gahanna Lincoln High School is well underway.

We will be meeting with the greater Gahanna school community in late January 2022 to share details about these three site plan options and to reveal the schematic design floor plan for the building. We are excited about the progress and look forward to sharing it with all of GJPS soon.

   MIDDLE SCHOOL ADDITIONS AND RENOVATIONS

 

ADDITIONS TO MIDDLE SCHOOLS EAST, SOUTH AND WEST IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF PHASE TWO

Middle School East

During the summer and fall of 2021, our GJPS design, architect and construction team met regularly to design additions and renovations to Middle Schools East, South and West. In addition, because each of our three middle schools has a unique floor plan, our team worked closely with the principals of the three schools to create learning spaces that meet the needs of our teachers and learners and create equitable spaces across the three middle schools.

The floor plans for each school include:

  • Additional classrooms at each school
    • Eleven at MSE
    • Ten at MSS
    • Eight at MSW
  • Flexible small group spaces for supplemental support and intervention
  • Expanded cafeteria seating
  • Additional related arts space
  • Increased office space
  • Equitable spaces across the three middle schools

PHASE TWO BEGINS WITH ADDITIONS TO BLACKLICK AND HIGH POINT ELEMENTARY

 

During the spring of 2021, our district project team met regularly to design plans for additions to Blacklick Elementary and High Point Elementary. The architect and construction teams worked closely with district administration and principals of the two schools to create learning spaces that will alleviate the current crowding in our buildings as well as accommodate the growth occurring in our area.

The floor plans for each school include:

  • Ten additional classrooms
  • New gymnasium
  • Extended cafeteria space
  • Increased small group spaces
  • More storage areas
  • Additional music and art spaces
