Construction Begins on New Southwest Little Rock High School

The district's first high school to be built in over 50 years

Posted October 03, 2017

Polk Stanley Wilcox is honored to be working with the Little Rock School District to design the new high school located on 55 acres in Southwest Little Rock. This will be the district’s first high school to be built in over 50 years, and will be the new flagship high school for the state’s capitol city. The high school will combine the student populations of J.A. Fair and McClellan high schools, for a total student count of over 2000. The school will strive to prepare students for the global stage through project-based learning and interdisciplinary teaching models. Therefore, the school will be designed with large classrooms, shared collaboration spaces, simulation labs, virtual classroom technology, and maker spaces, all of which support an aggressive and forward thinking approach to learning. The school will also incorporate visual and performing arts classes, and will feature a 1200 seat auditorium. The school’s athletic facilities will serve as a host facility for the region. Sports facilities are planned to include an arena size gymnasium, a combined football and soccer field with indoor and outdoor practice fields and field house, track and field, baseball and softball fields, and tennis.
