Neosho High School

Neosho High School’s Tornado Safe Room: The school district urgently needed classroom space to replace the multiple modular units crowding their high school campus.  The solution was a creative addition to their existing high school building in the form of a FEMA Tornado Safe Room.  A 1,600 student population dictated that the FEMA Tornado Safe Room would be a massive 14,000 sf facility.  By designing the protective shell as a linear, 2-story bar located at the front face of the existing high school, Neosho has created a new image for their school district, alleviated the classroom shortage, and provided a safe location for all of their students to seek shelter from within the building.

Another high-quality project completed by Sapp Design, an education architectural firm in the Springfield, Missouri area.
