Liberty High School Fine Arts Wing
The centerpiece of the new performing arts wing is an 800 seat auditorium with orchestra and balcony seating. This two level addition also provides a new home for band, choir, theatre, debate and forensics classrooms.

Liberty High School Renovation
After moving the fine arts classrooms to the new addition, that space was converted into classrooms, conference rooms, offices, and flex study areas.

Liberty North High School Addition
The space includes 23 General Education classrooms, 6 collaborative learning spaces and a “Prostart” Kitchen and lab that is set up to teach students about food preparation in a business environment. The 2 story structure features 4 operable white board walls and 6 glass retractable overhead doors that allows an additional 16 potential room layouts which can be used as needed to best fit the educational content. The project also includes a large multipurpose space that has two large exterior glass walls that open to an outdoor learning area that allows students and staff to bring the outside in on days when weather allows.
