Winner of the MacConnell Award in 1999, Edmonds-Woodway High School’s design grew out of the community’s desire to accommodate a wide variety of learning and teaching methodologies including traditional departmentally organized schools, individual project-based learning, or curricula organized as a school-within-a-school. The Edmonds School District retained Bassetti to develop a community-focused planning process, master plan, program, and design for a new high school on the site formerly occupied by Edmonds High School.

Opportunities for integrated learning take place in learning clusters or “neighborhoods” that include four adaptable classrooms, two laboratories, conference rooms, and teacher support spaces organized around a central “flex” area. Community use and partnerships have also directed the design. The library-media center, great hall, theater, gym, and art facilities are designed to be easily identifiable and accessible, accommodating community and educational functions.
