The Clever High School was built after a District-wide facility study was performed by Sapp Design Associates Architects, a Master Plan was adopted by the Clever R-V School Board in October of 2006. The first phases called for a New High School, serving grades 9-12, on the 84-acre site previously housing the District’s baseball field and concessions. The new facility is a single-story, 57,000 square foot facility, designed for 300 students. It features a central commons area for gathering and dining, as well as a gymnasium that accommodates;approximately 1,500 spectators in both chair back and bleacher seats.
Because the Master Plan projects an annual growth rate of around 8%, the facility has been designed for expansion. As the student population increases, centrally located general classrooms will be displaced by the expandable commons area. Other classrooms will be absorbed by the growing administration suite, while rooms with special functions, such as art and science labs will remain in their original locations. Displaced classrooms will be moved to future additions at the west facade. Growth at the south facade will include a practice gym and second set of lockers. Adjacent to the main entry, an addition to the east facade will include an auditorium, drama room, and second music facility. Special consideration for these additions were made during Phase I to ensure ease of renovation and good stewardship of funds.
