“It’s the crown jewel of this community and has become a catalyst for a renaissance in Richmond Heights, which is on its way to ‘bigger and better.’ " ~ Dr. Renee Willis
It is home to School Board offices and a branch of the Cuyahoga County library, which is a major component for students and the local community. Technology and flexibility play a major role in the school’s design which is evident in the extended learning area and other student-oriented spaces. The new school expands District athletic capabilities with two gymnasiums for the high school and middle school, along with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) focused areas such as a “Clean Makerspace ” and “Technology Commons.”
Superintendent Dr. Renee Willis, who led the project for the District feels this facility has the opportunity to transform the community. “It’s the crown jewel of this community and has become a catalyst for a renaissance in Richmond Heights, which is on its way to ‘bigger and better.’ The students, the community, and the library all rallied around this project and made it become a reality.”
This educational facility becomes a technological focal point for Richmond Heights students to further their education, collaborate with peers, and receive training in many STEAM-related programs.
