THE FULL STORY

FDG assisted the Paulding County School System in the development of the architectural programming and design associated with the new 240,000-SF South Paulding High School plan.

The new high school was designed to accommodate 1,600 students, and provides auxiliary facilities, including a gymnasium, dining hall and 500-seat auditorium. The school’s athletic facilities include a 3,000 seat football stadium, practice fields, eight-lane synthetic track, and a baseball/softball complex.

The split-level floor plan provides access to the gymnasium from the upper level, which supports the compact design and minimizes the footprint of the building. The design supports the educational requirements for the new school, while creating a balanced environment between the academic, extracurricular, ecological and the auxiliary components of the building.
