Skyline Gathers K-12 Together Under One Roof.
American School Board Journal, v156 n1 July 1968
Skyline School is a flexible and economical elementary and high school design for 400 pupils. The library, a large resource center serving all ages, and the administration offices are accented by landscaped courts. There are two instructional material centers per grade grouping of K-6 and 7-12. Grades 1-6 surround the kindergarten, which has separate entrances. Grades 7-12 surround the science lab. Noisy areas such as arts and crafts, music, shops, gym and commons are separate. The commons functions as part of the gym, or is used for noon lunch hour, plays, or community activities. The component system of construction features large clear interior spans which allow open circulation. The academic areas feature movable partitions, movable furniture, and carpeting. Air distribution, lighting and acoustics are integrated in the five foot modular ceiling. Bronze-colored windows assist multizoned, rooftop, air-conditioning units. (LD)
