The 61 acre portion of the campus dedicated to the high school includes two PE practice fields, baseball and softball fields, a football stadium seating 1450 home fans and 750 visitors, as well as a centrally-located press box, concession and restroom facility. Various sustainable principles were incorporated in the school design, including daylighting, access to exterior views, renewable materials, enhanced occupant fresh air quality, and energy-efficient mechanical equipment.
