Ballou High School

DC Public Schools
Washington, DC

Bowie Gridley Architects/Perkins + Will Joint Venture was selected through a design competition to develop the new Ballou High School replacement facility in Southeast DC. The facility’s design provides abundant natural lighting and takes advantage of spectacular views. The building program, based on a “Main Street” concept, includes individual grade-academies, state-of-the-art classrooms, an auditorium, cafeteria, library/multi-media center, gymnasium, outdoor athletic fields, and a community accessible fitness center and daycare center. A secure courtyard with terraced seating is integrated within the facility to promote additional outdoor activities. The project is slated for LEED Silver certification.
