Lanier James Education Center

Hallandale Beach, FL

Lanier James Education Center is a school for a special population of students ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade who display patterns of academic failure because of defiance and non-compliance. It is meant to be a transitional facility. The design is security oriented. Populations within the schools must be separated yet resources shared. The school provides a safe, disciplined, drug-free learning environment, which promotes the use of socially appropriate behaviors and increases the educational achievement levels of students with diverse learning and social needs. Counseling and behavioral professionals make up a large part of the faculty team. Zyscovich has developed a prototype for this unique learning situation.
