The Center for Arts & Sciences and Aquatics Center at Junipero Serra High School project consisted of a new 2-story academic building and competition swimming pool. Completed on an occupied campus, construction was preceded by the demolition of an existing 2-story structure and pool. The Center for Arts & Sciences features the latest instructional technology, and included the creation of five new science laboratories for biology, chemistry, and physics, as well as classrooms, facilities for the yearbook, newspaper, and films, a large art room, and a state-of-the-art band and choral rehearsal space. The new pool facility included the construction of a high-end, 38 meter by 25 yard pool designed for competition swimming and water polo, the construction of separate men’s and women’s locker rooms, a training room, and counseling center.

Serra High School was recognized by ENR California as the Best Project, K-12 Schools, for 2012.
