The new Belleville High School offers students diverse learning spaces for a comprehensive educational experience.
Fanning Howey’s design solution reused portions of the existing high school and constructed more than 300,000 square feet on the same site. This strategy resulted in cost savings that allowed the Owner to reinvest in additional scope, creating a new performing arts center and natatorium. The state-of-the-art school now provides students with fresh opportunities for project-based learning, performing arts and athletics.
