Germantown High School

Germantown, WI

After three years of master planning work between PRA, Germantown School District, and the Community, PRA helped the District pass a successful $84 million referendum in November of 2016. PRA then provided architectural and interior design services to the District for projects resulting from the referendum, which included work at the High School, Kennedy Middle School, and Amy Belle, County Line, MacArthur, and Rockfield Elementary Schools.

Germantown High School now has a four-station fieldhouse with a 160-yard running track. A competition natatorium with an eight-lane pool and community-accessible locker facilities was added. To provide a space for the performing arts, a 750-seat performing arts center was constructed adjacent to the existing rehearsal spaces. A state-of-the-art career and technical education learning center was created to support a STEM-based curriculum and align with the thriving local manufacturing base. Overall, learning spaces and student gathering spaces were improved with new finishes, lighting, and furniture resulting in a high school facility that reflects the growth and development of the Germantown community.
