Pinellas County Schools Largo High School
The new Largo High School building was modeled after a college campus, with an emphasis on efficient transitions in between classes, safety and security, readiness for the technology of the next several decades and, most importantly, student achievement. The project included the construction of two new buildings totaling approximately 229,000 square feet and houses classrooms, a student union, 1,590 seat gymnasium, as well as a central energy plant. Renovations to the existing auditorium were also performed.
The School District views the new school to be the prototypical high school for other schools to model throughout Florida and the country, stating that the building was built for the year 2050, instead of 2016.
