Sparwood Secondary School

Replacement of the existing Sparwood Secondary School dating back to 1953 was undertaken after a lengthy feasibility study. The existing elongated multi-winged facility was substantially over-capacity, costly to maintain, and difficult to manage.

The replacement facility is an industrial contemporary design, utilizing a combination of flat panel and corrugated cladding, with colored masonry reflecting the color palette of the surrounding mountains and forests.

The use of high level clerestory glazing in the corridors and multipurpose rooms, and utilization of large glazed areas provide students and staff with a naturally well lit comfortable environment. Design includes the gymnasium, multipurpose, administrative core.

Response from the user group and community has been very positive.
