Inadequate school facilities and a strong need for advanced technology led the Pandora-Gilboa Local School District to discontinue the use of their existing school buildings in order to create a new PreK-12 school to house all of the community's students.

Rather than traditional wings, the school's innovative design separates grade groupings with middle school classrooms located on the second floor and high school and elementary classrooms divided on opposite sides of the first floor. The design provides all students with easy access to shared resources and assembly space including the gymnasium, auditeria, media center, and administrative offices.

The auditeria, which is the focus of the building, is equipped with a 1,200-square-foot stage and theatrical lighting. The space will serve as a student dining area, a musical and theatrical performance space, and a spacious lobby area for after school events.

Adjacent to the auditeria is a spacious high-tech media center that features a central computer lab and a state-of-theart media retrieval system, which links classroom televisions throughout the building. This allows for long-distance learning, interactive learning, and other programs to prepare students for 21st century technology. In preparation for increasing wireless technology, classrooms are equipped with wireless terminals for lap top computer use so that every classroom can transform into a computer lab.
