The design for Platte Valley High School is reflective of the rural community of Kersey, Colorado. The District needed a new school facility built on a modest budget. RB+B drew inspiration from the agrarian building forms surrounding the site and community. Seventy percent of the facility is structured and sided with standard metal building systems.

The “Auditeria” combines the functions of a tiered seating auditorium with a cafeteria suitable for table seating. A tall, daylit corridor acts as the “Main Street”, connecting the major functions of the building. Stacked classroom pods efficiently break the school into smaller, more focused and more personal learning houses.
