This new 170,000 sq. ft. high school is home to 933 students in grades 9-12 and fulfills the two distinct goals that the Tallmadge District had for their new facility – to create the best environment for academic achievement while incorporating flexible spaces and to maintain the community’s rich heritage.
Inspired by the city’s historic “Tallmadge Circle,” the Greek revival circular design honors the city’s architecture. The center rotunda with clerestory windows serves as the commons area. From the commons, traffic is directed to “avenues” separating academics, arts, and athletics in separate wings. The building also features a 600-seat performing arts auditorium with a black box drama room – both equipped with state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems.
