  • Architecture

The new St. Cloud Technical High School features six integrated learning communities that support a variety of learning styles and foster global preparedness. 

The building’s design, developed through a partnership between Cuningham Group Architecture and Origin Design, was inspired by the site’s diverse landscape which includes woodlands, granite outcroppings and a designated trout stream.

The facility includes a combination of science and project labs as well as spaces for flexible learning, small group collaboration and collaborative teaching.

project overview

The design team nestled the building along the north woodland edge and each of the learning neighborhoods will open and be connected to the woods and stream, providing a connection to nature from any location in the school.

The high school’s design reflects the belief that learning can happen anywhere and students thrive when provide diverse educational opportunities. The site inspired an environmental studies curriculum and the building will include designated outdoor learning spaces. Career and technical education spaces are integrated throughout the building.
