HINKLEY HIGH SCHOOL RENOVATION & ADDITIONS
AURORA PUBLIC SCHOOLS
For Hinkley High School, MOA designed multiple additions and remodeled the existing school to accommodate four small learning communities within the single facility.
A layout of separate communities joined by wide hallways allows for cross-pollination or independence of the communities, as desired. Light and open spaces encourage students to mingle in lunch rooms (one new and one remodeled), the main spine, and in the library / media room – all of which were reconfigured to accommodate multiple uses. In addition to shelving and storage areas for books and media, the library / media room includes two computer labs, two group study rooms, and an administrative / workroom space. Comfortable and bright interior finishes, increased windows with daylight and views, and new additions whose forms and materials relate to its location have improved the morale and performance of students and faculty alike.
