The Charter School movement is all about choice
You’re pioneering a curriculum that will set you apart. Whether it is a classical, more progressive, or non-traditional approach to education, you require an equally unique approach to design. It’s a rare opportunity to start something new from the ground up. We want to work with you in order to understand your curriculum, students and community to achieve your mission of providing a remarkable experience for your students.
Hollis + Miller Architects understands the charter school landscape varies greatly from state to state.
Over the past 14 years our charter school work has been far reaching, including Missouri, Colorado, California, and Ohio.
A FEW KIND WORDS FROM OUR CLIENTS
Community leaders really need to be embracing change. We have to evolve, and we have to get better. As I think about working with the community leaders in Springfield, Hollis + Miller does that. They are embracing the need to improve and try new things in order to serve kids best.
The thing I probably appreciated the most is giving our children a voice in what their school was going to look like and really focusing in on the idea that we aren't building these schools for adults; they're built for kids. And they came to the table to do the right thing for the right reasons on behalf of the kids in this community, and they were sincere in their effort. I will forever be grateful for everything they've done for us and very appreciative of the relationship and look forward to working with them in the future.
The Lansing High School was my first time to work with Hollis + Miller or any architect on any project this size. They were very collaborative in terms of the way they work. They would take an idea, help us pull the broad range of ideas and pull then them back together to a common point to where they made sense and helped clarify our big-picture thinking.
Hollis + Miller's style of relating is a real strength. They're willing to do what it takes to get the job done. Justin Durham, our Client Leader, has a way of making us feel like we are his only client – even when we know we're not.
Woodrow Wilson Academy
Woodrow Wilson Academy approached Hollis + Miller to expand its middle school program in the existing K-8 school. While enrollment numbers weren’t increasing, the school recognized the need to give the middle school students more space to support student collaboration and project-based learning.
