Highlands Elementary School

Immokalee, FL

The School District of Collier County was facing a serious overcrowding problem at nearly all schools in the district. As such, they embarked on a major capital improvement plan to resolve the problem. A large portion of this plan included converting all of the existing K-5 elementary schools to K-6 schools through remodeling/reprogramming and major addition projects, while updating and modernizing the facilities to current District standards. 

At Highlands Elementary, Zyscovich provided a full scope analysis and facility and systems assessments. The final scope of work included over 30,000 SF of new construction containing classrooms and labs, expansion of the dining/multi-purpose room and stage, and a new P.E. shelter. The 60,000 SF of renovation work included ADA toilet upgrades and a new HVAC system with electrical upgrades.  In addition, the existing school was reroofed.

Zyscovich designed the expanded site to create a new entry and face to the campus. The new campus plan is highly secure, with one main entry point at administration. The new site plan provides extended on-site drop-offs and expanded parking facilities and relocates the existing play fields to secure the site’s boundaries and to create a community park for after-hours use.
