This stunning $62 million high school for Canyons School District is 311,000 SF and stands as a hallmark for design and construction quality, as it is the first new high school project for the four-year-old District.

The school aims to improve indoor environmental quality, in addition to providing copious amounts of daylighting throughout the building. Design innovations center on a central core with academic wings extending out from the core. Design also allows separation of academic areas from athletic areas, the performing arts, and industrial spaces to reduce noise conflicts.

The school features state-of-the-art science labs, an expanded cafeteria and kitchen, two-story academic classroom wings, a 120-seat lecture hall, and a twelve hundred-seat auditorium. The school houses a 3,300-seat competition gymnasium meeting NCAA standards, two auxiliary gyms, and a football field with seating for more than forty-seven-hundred spectators.

A stately dome highlights the main entryway, a design element inspired by an old Draper community meeting place called the Roundhouse.
