Community tours LHS during Open House Event

Feb. 28, 2024

Lindbergh Schools hosted the community at Lindbergh High School to explore its new student learning spaces during an Open House event Saturday, Feb. 24.

The event included self-guided tours, student performances and instructional demonstrations that show community members how the new school is being used to provide students with innovative learning experiences that prepare them for success in college, career and life.

“We are extremely grateful to our community for supporting facility improvements that allow us to meet the ever-changing needs of our students and staff, and we loved the turnout and show of support from the community.” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Tony Lake.

Lindbergh High School construction was made possible by community support of Prop R 2019, a no-tax-rate-increase bond issue that funded new construction and renovations at LHS, in addition to safety upgrades districtwide.

Lindbergh HIgh School By the numbers:

  • Total project size:  485,000 sf  (272,500 sf renovation and 212,500 sf new construction)
  • 55 new classrooms
  • 4 new science labs
  • 9 collaborative project areas

A Connected Campus

Inspired by the physical need to connect disparate buildings on the existing “California-style” campus, the new 3-story Lindbergh High School addition employs a simple, formal gesture that physically connects three existing buildings on the campus. The addition presents a new front door to the campus and gives the building an identity on the site.

The building reimagines a 12-foot change in elevation as an opportunity to connect buildings between two stories. A central spine of circulation and community space links existing and new, uniting a sprawling campus into a single building in support of a tight knit community. A variety of flexible spaces, both grand and intimate, serve as the infrastructure for new pedagogies and student-centered learning.

Nine collaboration spaces strewn throughout the building are in support of project-based learning, each paired with 3-4 classrooms with glass garage doors that literally blur the boundaries of the traditional classroom and offering valuable multi-functional real estate for teachers and students. 

The renovated high school offers flexible space that can evolve with their changing needs, increased safety and security, and a building that fosters community connections.

The Expo

An existing single-story, aging building once housed 20 classrooms without natural light is transformed to the “Expo” which intertwines technology, engineering, and visual arts education. This interdisciplinary hub for innovation is renovated to a contemporary industrial aesthetic, providing a place for students to explore and get their hands dirty.
