Ripon Area School District

Ripon, WI

With plans to expand and combine the Ripon Area School District’s Middle and High School, PRA helped assist the School District in successfully passing a $29.1M referendum in November 2014.

Following the referendum success, PRA was hired to provide architectural design and engineering services for the expansion and renovation of existing Ripon High School to accommodate Ripon Middle School in the same facility. The design allows for the School District to provide modern learning environments for both middle and high school students in a facility that is flexible and efficient for both the District and the students.

The resulting building includes:

  • A new welcoming entrance
  • A multi-purpose and daylit student commons
  • Branding elements to incite school spirit
  • A variety of large and small collaborative breakout spaces
  • A fabrication lab
