Heating and air conditioning is supplied from rooftop packaged high efficiency units, supplemented with perimeter hydronic system. The electrical systems feature state-of-the-art network and communications systems.
The school building accommodates approximately 708 students, and includes a multi-purpose performance space, gymnasium, cafeteria, 26 classrooms and nine special education classrooms.
