Lexington School District 1, White Knoll High School Performing Arts Center + Additions

The White Knoll High School Performing Arts Center and classroom additions are set to transform the educational landscape in Lexington County. Population growth had forced White Knoll High School into using portable classrooms, prompting the school to seek a permanent solution. As part of a phased renovation on an active campus, the district decided to add a performing arts center (PAC) to support the arts in their district.

A Strategic Change Reduces Project Time + Enhances Security

Initially, plans placed the new PAC where the portable classrooms stood, extending a classroom wing. However, after reviewing the campus, we proposed to build the PAC closer to the center of the school. This consolidated footprint enhances security and allows both additions to occur simultaneously, reducing the overall project time by a year.

The 1,000-seat performing arts center boasts a black box theatre, dance studio, and an auditorium theatre with a fly system, dressing rooms, and ample storage. The lobby, with an exterior entrance, welcomes the audience with a curved wall of windows and interior paneling. This center promotes community pride in arts education and supports the growth of student performers.

In addition to student productions, the White Knoll High School Performing Arts Center will host local and professional performances. This dynamic venue will enrich the arts and cultural opportunities for the entire community.

The two-story classroom addition houses 32 classrooms, including ESOL, career & life skills, computer, and science programs with labs and resource rooms. To maintain building security, a lab accessible after school is secured with scheduled locks. Each floor features a flexible central collaboration space for large groups, and a staff lounge. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring in plenty of natural light.

The new facilities at White Knoll High School represent a significant investment in both educational excellence and community engagement.
