After the successful passage of a bond issue in the Fall of 1999, Pasadena I.S.D. administrators, faculty and end-users began working with IBI Group to create an exciting, functional facility for the districts’ fifth high school, Pasadena Memorial High School.
Pasadena Memorial High School, which rests on an 80-acre site, is designed around three main segments. The first segment includes the quiet academic area, library and central administration area. The second segment contains the noisy areas such as music, drama, auditorium, gymnasium and drill team. The third segment contains the cafeteria and vocational laboratories. Two landscaped courtyards that surround the cafeteria are used for outdoor dining, a sculpture court, and an art lab. Beyond its functional aspects, the courtyards provide an inviting environment for students and staff.
