Abstract

School design affects every person that walks through it’s halls, and it is vital to put careful thought into the way it is both laid out and designed. Considering the needs of everyone that enters the building, such as students, teachers, administrative staff, and parents, is key to successful design. The needs of each group must be in harmony with one another, so that no one group suffers. At the beginning of school design it is important to take into consideration the current troubles that have been affecting them. Which means school safety is at the top of a designers priority list. Making sure that no strangers or threats can enter the school is imperative. The next step would be to make sure that if there was a breach in the school the students and staff are able to get out of view, and either hide from the intruder or make a quick and swift escape. Another important factor to school design is knowing what type of school is being created, in this case a Fine Arts Charter School. With this particular requirement in mind the layout of a school is important. Each individual classroom able to meet the needs of the students to learn in an efficient and warm environment, but in a fine Arts school the focus needs to revolve around the Arts just as much as the primary learning. The individual music classrooms and art classrooms have requirements that fit with their own specific design needs, such as instrument space or art storage. Designing to meet several different needs and requirements takes research and careful planning. Through the proper design and layout of a Fine Arts Charter School the safety and welfare of the students can be increased along with the students’ academic ability and experience.
