What is the capacity of the proposed high school replacement?
We have reviewed the school capacity information provided by Chris Lilley, McGranahan Architect, and have also discussed this matter with him, personally. Here's what we found out:
- The proposed school replaces all of the existing teaching stations, whether presently used or not.
- Based on our current SHS enrollment of 1200 students, the school would be at 58% capacity.
- Normal high school capacities max out at approximately 83%.
- At 83% efficiency, the proposed school would have room for approximately 1700 students.
- At full capacity of 1700, all teaching stations would be utilized and class sizes would be at the recommended maximum.
