Norton High School sits on 35 acres of land located in the heart of Norton and accommodates 820 students in grades 9-12. This new state-of-the-art facility is designed meeting the LEED Silver Certification Level. Site related issues including the preservation of wetland areas and pre-existing storm water management issues presented challenges to the design team. The project included a number of Locally Funded Initiatives (LFI’s) including a new Athletic Stadium complex and a Performing Arts Theatre.
The arrangement of the site separates the floor plan into three main areas which includes academics, athletics and performing arts, each with its own distinctive entrance area on the front façade of the building. The traditional exterior design was requested by the school district after visiting and touring other facilities.
