With the help of the Ohio School Facilities Commission's Classroom Facilities Assistance Program and TRIAD Architects, Waverly City Schools built a showplace of advanced arts and education. In a $46.5 million project, the district replaced its four existing schools with four brand new schools.

Waverly began its project with a series of community-wide meetings in which residents discussed what they wanted out of their new schools. A consensus was formed to build a PreK-12 campus on the 111-acre site that had been purchased about a decade earlier by a forward-thinking school board.

TRIAD began the project's design phase by carefully planning the site so that middle and high school students would be separated from elementary students. A main campus parkway sets apart the schools and serves as a traffic mediator by filtering bus routes to an exterior loop and parent and student traffic to the campus' interior avenues.

A strong music and theater program drove the innovative design for the new Waverly High School. The building features a large music suite with instrumental and vocal rooms. Both rooms adjoin separate libraries to be used by the music directors for planning, scheduling, grading and conferences. Additional music facilities within the suite include an ensemble room and two practice rooms. The music suite has direct access to the auditorium's stage for convenience during performances.

The 11,000-square-foot auditorium, locally funded by the community, will seat up to 650 people. It features an elevated 4,200-square-foot stage with adjacent scene shop, storage mezzanine, orchestra pit and dressing rooms.

The new Waverly Junior High School was designed to expand student's technology skills and promote collaborative learning. Each classroom includes a television monitor and computers with Internet access. Students are encouraged to explore several technology fields, including robotics, electronics and thermodynamics, in the school's new, state-ofthe- art modular technology lab. Two adjacent 1,100-square-foot project labs foster group learning. Like the high school, Waverly's new junior high was designed to accommodate the school's extensive music program.

Waverly's two new elementary schools, Waverly Primary and Waverly Intermediate School provide students with a creative learning environment and technology that meets the needs of today's education. To enhance collaborative learning, meeting rooms are located between each classroom. These 100-square-foot rooms provide the perfect amount of space for small group meetings, group work, or student and faculty meetings. For supervision purposes, each small group room includes a window on each side that overlooks the adjacent classrooms.

Both elementary schools include a central computer lab and four computers per classroom, each equipped with Internet access and an assortment of educational programs. Each classroom will also include a television that is linked to the campus' media distribution system.

Occupied in the fall of 2004, Waverly's new schools have already become the pride of the community.
