Otay Ranch High School

The framework plan of the campus celebrates three distinct nodes: an “academic hill town” (classroom buildings), a “market square” (multi-purpose building), and the acropolis (administration, ASB, career-to-business, and library). The plan is strengthened by connecting the three nodes with a Scholarly Walk and a Civic Paseo.

The architectural parti creates a community landmark with the library. Concurrently, various programmatic elements have been articulated through massing, materials and color to provide a rich composition. Internally, the campus focus is the multi-purpose center with its colossal columns, grand entry arch, and monumental multi-colored striped metal roof.
