We caught up with students and educators at C.P. Allen to learn how they enjoy learning and teaching in their new school after being open for 5 years.
Charles P. Allen (C.P. Allen) high school accommodates both academic and community uses, is designed for 1200 students. A large exterior courtyard, promoting the use of exterior green space, is the primary inspirational area. It is encircled by the creative heart of the school – drama, art, music, cafetorium, visual arts, etc. Spaces dedicated to creative thought curriculum (art, technology production and collaborative/project-based learning) are also positioned adjacent to the courtyard. The community space features exercise and activity rooms, meeting rooms, a daycare space and a full size gymnasium.
