Architect Jean Labatut designed a campus in 1963 that was significantly ahead of its time, incorporating many concepts that would later become the criteria in the United States Green Building Council’s LEED green building certifications.
Our 55-acre campus is largely natural with a very small area that requires regular upkeep or irrigation. 这既保护了自然栖息地，又大大减少了资源消耗. Our driveways and parking areas are woven into the landscape and have reduced the heat island effect of large, 铺路的无阴影区域. 该布局也保留了基地的自然地形和显著特征. The building itself brings the outside in with natural light in learning environments and incredible views of the landscape. Labatut为建筑选择的材料是混凝土, brick and glass -- have extensive life spans and require minimal maintenance and upkeep. 也许最重要的是, the infusion of the outdoors in our learning environment leads to the appreciation and respect for nature so apparent in our school identity.
