Client Challenge

A bond was passed in 2015 that focused on school security, technology upgrades, roofing, heating, and energy efficiency. In order to give Kelloggsville students all available opportunities to prepare them for their futures, the high school space needed to be renovated to accommodate the competitive nature of today’s learning environment. This development included adding a gymnasium, track, and media center on an extremely restricted site, while completely updating the rest of the school to meet modern learning standards.
