Three High Schools Revisited--Andrews, McPherson, and Nova. Profiles of Significant Schools.
Kohn, Sherwood D.
Three schools--Nova High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, McPherson Senior High School in McPherson, Kansas, and Andrews Senior High School in Andrews, Texas--are examined in this report. All of them are considered advanced educational plants, and all have been in full operation for less than five years, but most of their innovational aspects have already been thoroughly tested. Many have proven effective. Some, on the other hand, have not, and it is the purpose of this report to replay the valuable lessons that educators have learned in actual practice, informing future planners as to which features might be emulated and which avoided in the design of school buildings for the space age. All incorporate--(1) team teaching, (2) individual instruction, (3) audio-visual aids, (4) decentralized resource facilities, and (5) efficient environmental controls leading architects in the direction of flexible, multipurpose space, library focal points, full air-conditioned and carpeted buildings, greater use of acoustical materials, one-floor loft places, windowless areas, teachers' offices and planning rooms, and modern communications hardware.
