UNDERSTANDING

YOUR DISTRICT

We work with all stakeholders to understand your district’s vision for student success.

A TAILORED ENVIRONMENT FOR EVERY STAGE OF LEARNING

Public school district facilities must be customized to you and your students. We leave any preconceived ideas behind and use our co-create process to fully understand your schools, educators and students—developing a custom process for you. After all, you deserve more than just a general practitioner.

By creating tailored environments for every stage of learning, we work with you to both nurture and prepare students for the future. We’re proud to work with districts around the nation, assisting with every phase of the process:

Bond planning

With decades of experience helping districts with bond issues, our assistance begins even before we design.

Community engagement

We know a successful public school project greatly depends on community support. We’ll help you engage all stakeholders with strategic communication every step of the way.

Facility assessments

Our evaluation goes beyond simply the mechanical and engineering; we’ll work with your educators to assess the best ways to incorporate best practices of brain-based learning throughout the facility.

Supporting visions for learning

Before any designs are developed, our specialists engage with key district-level staff to explore your visions for learning, both now and in the future.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY

  • Community leaders really need to be embracing change. We have to evolve, and we have to get better. As I think about working with the community leaders in Springfield, Hollis + Miller does that. They are embracing the need to improve and try new things in order to serve kids best.

    John Jungmann, Superintendent Springfield Public Schools
  • The thing I probably appreciated the most is giving our children a voice in what their school was going to look like and really focusing in on the idea that we aren't building these schools for adults; they're built for kids. And they came to the table to do the right thing for the right reasons on behalf of the kids in this community, and they were sincere in their effort. I will forever be grateful for everything they've done for us and very appreciative of the relationship and look forward to working with them in the future.

    CJ Huff, Former Superintendent Joplin School District
  • The Lansing High School was my first time to work with Hollis + Miller or any architect on any project this size. They were very collaborative in terms of the way they work. They would take an idea, help us pull the broad range of ideas and pull then them back together to a common point to where they made sense and helped clarify our big-picture thinking.

    Randall Bagby, Former Superintendent Lansing USD #469
  • Danielle Dratch and Greg Porter provided an outstanding level of architectural service to the district on our project. Support and attention from Partner in Charge Chris Heinz has been ever-present throughout the processes and Michelle Chavey facilitated our Design Advisory Group with skill, knowledge and efficiency.
