01 Project Overview
Renovations to the historic Coolidge High School are bringing 21st century education to D.C. students, with new additions mimicking existing structures to preserve the building’s legacy.

Renovations will combine two separate schools (a middle school and a high school) through the modernization of the existing historic building. The campus is designed to be half middle school and half high school, with shared spaces in the center. Flexible classrooms are bringing 21st century learning opportunities to the historic campus, with moveable furniture and integrated technologies that allow the spaces to transform to support various styles of instruction. The school also offers a community clinic, daycare center and parent center.
