Cedarburg School District High School | Cedarburg, WI

Originally built in 1954 and most recently renovated in 2002, CSD’s high school is over the recommended capacity and utilization rates. The result of 38 individual department meetings, 21 engineering and core team meetings, six Tech. Ed. Advisory Team collaboration meetings and numerous design sessions, improvements at the high school will include:

  • More Classrooms: Additional classrooms to offer more course offerings and to accommodate the district’s growth.

  • New Cafeteria: Currently overcrowded during the existing lunch periods, the only remaining option is to schedule even more lunch periods, which causes scheduling issues that limit the number of classes students can take.

  • STEAM Classrooms: Update Tech Ed spaces to meet the demands of the workforce and advanced manufacturing, including skilled trades and Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) professions.

  • Small Group Learning Spaces: Create collaboration and project-based instructional spaces that foster workforce-ready skills.

  • Upgrade Secure Main Entry: Improve monitoring and control visitor access.

  • Improved Egress Routes: Alleviate congestion in the hallways and stairwells to avoid safety hazards.

  • Improve Traffic Flow: Improve access and exit points for vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists.

  • Controlled After-hours Access: Minimize building access to designated areas during events while improving community access.
