Alliance / Aspire Charter Schools
This adaptive re-use of an existing 78,000 sf industrial building, houses 900 students for two separate charter school operators. Aspire Public Schools operates grades 6-8, and the Alliance for College-Ready Public School operates grades 9-12. The two schools have independent entrances, administration areas, and classrooms. Shared spaces, central to the campus include a multi-purpose room, library and parent center. The plan development evolved around maximizing the existing infrastructure, openings, skylights, and administrative offices while giving a distinct identity to each of the school entries.
