Designed with learners in mind, the new Old Mill West High School will provide students with a premier learning environment.

Core instructional programs are thoughtfully organized within a three-story academic bar to provide maximum daylight and ventilation. Flexible classrooms available for group and independent study are centrally located within the academic core to promote frequent use among students and faculty. Two glazed curtainwall corridors link the academic bar to the main building housing the media center, gymnasium, cafeteria, and administration. Benches within the corridors and adjacent to classrooms promote accidental collisions that foster interaction between students and faculty. An outdoor courtyard formed by the corridors offers students and teachers a place to learn, gather, and study.
