Lake Creek HS Groundbreaking

By | Client News

Lake Creek High School broke ground on Thursday, kicking off construction of Montgomery ISD’s second high school campus. The facility will open in 2018, blending secondary education with a collegiate and professional feel that supports engaging interactions and real-world experiences.

The campus is designed along a “main street corridor” that connects the media center / library and academic wing to public core components including fine arts, athletics and CTE programs. Academic wings are grouped in a flexible arrangement that support multi-disciplinary programming. A modern materials palette combines limestone, brick, metal panels, large expanses of glass and engineered wood veneer.

Child-Centered Learning

Kerri Ranney, Huckabee’s Director of Learning & Strategic Development, talks about child centered learning and empowering educators in a recent guest column in School Planning and Management magazine.

“In architectural design, we follow the foundational concept that form follows function, believing that instructional environments are most successful when approached methodically, as opposed to delivering a one-size-fits-all learning space. As customizable learning experiences come to prominence, more focus than ever is being put on child-centered learning philosophies, in which multiple pedagogies and diverse learning needs are used to inspire educational design.

However, focusing solely on the child-learner often misses a key opportunity: the professional development of educators. As educational facilities continue to evolve, expanding the planning and design conversation to include educator development and space needs will impart far greater success in the classroom, for educators and students alike.”
