iTech Preparatory School

Project Overview

I-Tech Preparatory School, situated on the northeastern corner of Washington State University’s Vancouver campus, is a dynamic STEM-focused institution designed to nurture students in grades 6-12. The new building provides approximately 78,000 SF of enclosed space, as well as a covered, open-air fitness space located on the second floor. The school’s architecture is purposefully crafted across three levels, seamlessly integrating classrooms, laboratories, art and media spaces, and fabrication areas. At its core lies a central gathering and presentation space, fostering collaboration and intellectual exchange among students and faculty.

One of the standout features of the school is its covered open-air fitness area located on the second floor, promoting physical well-being alongside academic growth. Beyond the confines of the classrooms, the campus offers various outdoor amenities including an inviting common area, an arts patio, and a play structure, all designed to enrich the student experience. Environmental sustainability is a priority, evident in the integration of a thoughtfully designed stormwater feature. This commitment to eco-consciousness extends throughout the campus, harmonizing with the natural surroundings. The campus is meticulously planned for connectivity and accessibility, with ample parking lots, driveways, sidewalks, pathways, and landscaped areas. Elevated walkways and bridge connections enhance navigation, ensuring ease of access for all members of the school community.
