Willow Spring High School

Willow Spring High School

Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina

Located adjacent to the South Lakes neighborhood, this illustrious facility can accommodate up to 2,350 students within the Wake County Public School System. We adapted the design from H6’s Rolesville High School to accommodate anticipated enrollment growth and improve the educational experience of current Willows Springs students.

Several programmatic features improve upon the original model, such as a two-story café commons space, more centrally located learning pod commons, and the transfer of athletic programs to the first floor. The main academic tower, oriented to the North-South axis for ample daylighting, includes 100 teaching spaces and a central café common area with an adjoining media center. A two-story connecter with a monumental stair encourages active movement throughout the school day and links the Athletics and Performing Arts wings.

The Willow Springs prototype is one of several we have developed to speed time to market and improve accuracy of cost estimates. The flexible, progressive design of the school promotes collaboration and fosters a more personal learning environment for its students.
