The Villages High School
The Villages, Florida, USA
The Villages established itself as an extraordinary retirement community. There, residents enjoy the convenience of many everyday necessities located within the community. That means having a professional workforce — often with families — in an isolated area. When the community wanted to build a top-flight school system for employees’ children, they called Haskell.
For The Villages’ unique charter-modeled school system, we designed and built an 89,000-square-foot, 200-student station high school. The high school’s collegiate feel inspires learning and satisfies working parents. Haskell delivered the school — and in less than a year — prepared for growth, enabling the surrounding community to grow as well.
The project was the seventh completed by Haskell for the community. Features such as in-laid brick in tilt-wall panels and composite steel and concrete floor systems exemplify the type of construction Haskell has become known for delivering. Now attracting and retaining employees is easier with an effective, onsite educational program.
In my 28 year career in education, I have never had a better overall experience than we received with Haskell.Randy G. McDaniel, EdD Director of Education, The Villages
