Harbor Beach voters approved a $12.04 million bond issue, making the proposed conversion of the existing high school/middle school into a PreK-12 facility a reality. The addition of 60,000 square feet and renovation of an additional 87,000 square feet of adequate space brought the building’s new available space to a functional size, capable of housing the overall population increase. The existing elementary school was obsolete and inefficient. Site work eventually called for demolition of that facility and landscaping to improve the expanded high school. Significant design elements reminiscent of the adjacent waterway include an undulating roof line, repeated in multiple areas around the building. A combination of masonry block and horizontal banding lend visual interest to the raised glass rotunda at the main entrance.
