  • Designing a school for the well-being of everyone, from faculty to students, can be a struggle. However, at a site like Hughes Springs, you can do so by taking advantage of all that the town has to offer. The town is known for its strong community, pleasing natural scenes, and hospitality towards visitors. But how can a school bring all of those great attributes together? This school encourages everyone to use the outdoors. There are plenty of great spaces for all to use with a great amount of naturistic scenes. It encourages visitors in the space to communicate with those who use the school. The mind of a small school happens to be connected with its small town through its ways of living and the knowledge passed down from person to person. The school gives an abundant amount of spaces for people to converse and connect in order to share ideas and encourage the younger generation to achieve greater goals.
