John R. Rogers High School's original, historic 90,000-square-foot building was renovated and restored with a new 170,000-square-foot addition designed to complement the classic art deco design, providing a renewed, state-of-the-art high school and a revitalized community icon. Two large celebratory entrances on each side of the first-floor administration office and second-floor library clearly establish entrance points for students and visitors. A third entrance to the athletic center is easily seen as secondary to the main entrances. A new clock tower located near the student entrance to the commons is a beacon, clearly signaling the main school entrance. Daylighting and views were a major design element with nearly every classroom featuring windows, either to the outside of the building or into a courtyard contained within the building. Each room is equipped with lighting sensors that turn lights off after periods of inactivity.
