"The two-story high school includes a student center, faculty and administrative offices, conference rooms for teachers and students, and seven classrooms – two of which are dedicated solely for art and science.
Briburn, a Portland-based architectural firm, designed the new building to meet net-zero energy demands – Passive House and Maine Advanced Building certifications – demonstrating the school’s commitment to environmental stewardship. Warren Construction Group broke ground last year.
“People are thrilled that the building reflects our environmental commitment and values,” Espy said. “(The windows) give beautiful views and great light … you feel like you are in nature.”
The school’s Community Hall is also undergoing expansion to include a main office building, a new cafe and commercial kitchen, and music and performing arts classrooms. The office has been completed and the other two additions are slated to be wrapped up by the end of the year."
