Description: Miley Achievement Center is an elementary, middle, and high school (K-12) organized around the “school within a school” concept. Each is formed around a central “exterior learning” courtyard. Common areas such as offices, the library, multi-purpose room, computer lab, and art room are easily accessed from the main corridor. Separate outdoor areas provide amenities that are age group appropriate.

The concept of utilizing the criteria established by LEED lends itself to the quality of the learning areas and improving the learning process. Natural day-lighting, energy efficient mechanical systems, and low maintenance materials were utilized. Through presentations and interactive exercises, concepts and goals were developed that reflect the best practices in education and a flexibility to embrace a variety of educational delivery options. Current trends in education, with great emphasis on visioning, were discussed at length.
