Learners of all ages – toddler to adult – now feel at home at the renamed Millcreek Campus. This multi-generational learning environment houses several of the District’s community and alternative learning programs. With all these generations meeting in this one space, collaborative learning is taken to the next level.
The Parents as Teachers program hosts parents of young children for playgroups and child development support. Flexible learning environments and specialized spaces allow middle and high school students with special circumstances the opportunity to catch up or stay on track with their schoolwork, and adult education classroom spaces offer community members the opportunity to expand their career opportunities.
This historic campus was previously known as the John P. St. John Memorial High School, originally built in 1926. This outdated facility housed many of these educational and community programs in three separate buildings. Our design team worked with the District’s educational partners to reimagine the campus, starting with an addition that connects the buildings and allows for more collaboration and engagement. Today, the space welcomes learners of every generation– making it a learning environment like no other.

Infants through first graders are excited to be in one, new building that encourages students to connect with the natural environment around them. Interior design and environmental graphics make this space come alive and encourage these little learners to imagine. It also helps these little learners to understand what a space’s purpose is without traditional wayfinding signage that they wouldn’t be able to read. The various learning environments include large instruction, small group and one-on-one.
The rural community of Chillicothe, Missouri, is committed to making big changes for their students. This new elementary school is just the first step in the District’s plan to get all their elementary school students in one new building and all their students on one campus around their high school.

Patton Junior High School
PATTON JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL
- Fort Leavenworth School District
- Renovation & Addition
- 108,000 SF
- $43.3 million
Previously a historic elementary school, the newly renovated junior high offers state-of-the-art facilities and programs for 6th through 9th grades on base at Fort Leavenworth.
Designed with a strong concept of community, history and tradition, Patton Junior High now boasts flexible learning spaces for students. The transformative years between 6th and 9th grade can be difficult, especially with the added stress of moving cities. Over 50% of Patton students are only able to spend one school year on base, so the district worked diligently to co-create a building that would instill excitement in students, leaving a lasting impact on families.
The central media center, open courtyard and commons serve as the heart of the building. Two new auxiliary gyms, and programs such as industrial technology, culinary arts, a greenhouse and more provide students with competitive opportunities, laying the groundwork for high school and further education. Historical graphics lining the grand entry hall tell the compelling story behind the school’s namesake.
