A. E. Stevenson High School District 125
Cannon Design has helped A. E. Stevenson High School manage explosive student population growth through several facility expansions and remodeling projects since 1986. The main building, originally designed for 800 students, was expanded throughout the years with major additions to accommodate 2,800 students. With enrollment increasing to 4,500 in 2000, another major addition was built on the 71-acre campus to accommodate 1,200 students. In 2004, a prominent new entry and student commons areas were added to relieve congestion and streamline circulation. Cannon Design also analyzed and replaced mechanical systems for the entire campus through phased upgrades.
Specialty teaching areas in the most recent addition include a large computer facility with separate student study areas, a fully equipped chemistry lab, and an innovative 1,200-seat auditorium that uses turntables to divide the space for a variety of simultaneous educational uses. An award-winning resource center and commons were added in 2001. Athletic facilities designed by Cannon Design include an eight-lane, 50-meter swimming pool, a 40,000 sf field house, locker rooms, and tennis courts.
