The construction of several educational facilities for the Revere Local School District are concluding with the opening of the new Revere High School in September 2020.
The BSHM/Perkins + Will design team collaboration was selected for the significant district-wide project in 2017. The Revere projects consist of a new Elementary School, High School, bus garage, and athletic fields, in addition to renovations to the existing Middle and Richfield Elementary Schools. The BSHM/PW Design Team was selected for their thoughtful and genuine desire to assist the District with its transition to new learning environments. BSHM is the architect of record and became the lead as the project moved through the design and construction administration phases.
The BSHM/PW Design Team led a series of visioning workshops that engaged the community, Elementary School staff and High School staff. The Elementary School staff embraced the student-centered learning concept, while the High School staff leaned toward a traditional learning environment that incorporates various smaller flexible teaching spaces that are adjacent to typical classrooms.
In Fall 2019, Bath Elementary opened on the location of the previous school site. The new three-story facility has a traditional appearance to fit its location at the center of Bath Township.
The new bus garage is open, and renovation will soon conclude at the existing facilities remaining.
The new Revere High School opened on September 8, 2020 for students and staff. The building design is contemporary and well-suited for its placement where the former high school set. The increased building area provides several learning environments beyond the traditional classroom space. These spaces include commons and small group rooms at each academic wing level, conference and maker space areas in the renovated media center, and outdoor patio with tables outside the student dining area. There are two large gymnasiums, weight room and an auditorium. The building lobby provides a grand sense of entry with its two-story height open to a red cedar wood plank ceiling.
The exterior of the new high school, where demolition of the existing school is complete, and the new parking and practice athletic field will soon be completed.
