Thompson School District High Plains School
High Plains PreK-8 School is the newest addition to the Thompson School District. Designed as a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) facility, the school opened its doors in Fall of 2016 to nearly 600 students. The North wing houses administrative offices, Pre-K and Kindergarten suites, a gymnasium, and cafeteria. The South wing houses classrooms for 1st through 8th grades, as well as over 4,500 square feet of STEAM space. The East and West wings are separated by a glass-lined hallway, allowing for separation of public and educational spaces, while doubling as a student gallery. Large windows were installed on both the North and South portions of the building, allowing for optimal daylighting conditions to those areas.
