The Project

Kingston City School District desired to create tight-knit learning communities that allowed students to feel safe and valued in order to perform better both academically and socially. That vision resulted in a record $137.5 million bond referendum passing by residents of Kingston, New York. Centrally located, KSQ created a three- and four-story academic center to support four smaller academies. The school’s historic “Main” building underwent extensive interior renovations and HVAC repairs, while two existing buildings were removed completely for site access improvements. The Field House was reconstructed and a community fitness center was added. Other existing campus buildings were renovated, modernized, and brought up to current accessibility requirements. The KHS plan creates a 21st Century High School by addressing the physical deficiencies of the campus and introducing the modern infrastructure needed for reliable, energy-efficient, cost-effective occupancy and operations.
