Overview

Lakewood has had an ongoing relationship with Caledonia Community Schools since 2006 when the community passed a $30.5 million bond issue for construction. We were back onboard with them in 2014 for a $41 million bond issue divided into four key areas, one of which included the new South Campus High School.

The new South Campus building was designed with collaborative learning in mind by creating unique spaces for staff and students to practice and learn new instructional strategies. The entire school has the feel and resembles groups of young professionals from Google or Steelcase, as students work on projects both individually and as teams compliments of tech tools and mobile, flexible furniture.

The two-story building highlights include:

Science and Art Wings
23 Classrooms
Modern Media Center with Flexible Furniture
Auxiliary Gymnasium
Mini Auditorium
Black Box Theater
Cafeteria
Two Large Project Rooms Bordered by Smaller Break-out Spaces for Small Group Work
Lots of Collaborative Space Building-wide
The South Campus building also alleviates crowding at the main campus with room for 600 students and land for expansion.
