Woolpert is passionate about designing educational facilities that excite students. As industry leaders in K-12 facility design, we create flexible and dynamic spaces that fully support today’s multiple learning and teaching styles. Our multidisciplinary teams promote 21st-century school design principles such as communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity. At the same time, we craft progressive designs that transcend current demands to foster growth and enrichment for decades to come.

The buildings we create can be used as everyday instructional tools—lessons on sustainability, function and community are inherent—and outdoor learning areas provide further opportunity for stimulation and engagement. Aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient, these schools are constructed with durable materials and systems that require minimal long-term maintenance and meet the specific needs of the school system.
