In Spring 2010, the Hartselle City Board of Education sought the design and planning expertise of Goodwyn, Mills, and Cawood to design the new Hartselle High School. The traditional exterior design, characteristic of the Hartselle Central Business District, and modern, open interiors, designed in the school’s colors, was designed to accommodate the growing population of the district. The plan, with a design capacity of 1,200 students, consists of a is a two-story classroom wing with 45 general instruction classrooms, a 1,200 seat performing arts auditorium, full music and drama support facilities, a large kitchen and cafeteria, and media center. The school master plan also supports a full athletic program with football practice facilities, tennis courts, and indoor baseball practice facility. The plan also includes a 1,600 seat competition sports arena with concourse level concessions and a practice gymnasium within the two-story plan.
As a member of the project design team, tasks included exterior facade design, focusing on classical proportions and material selection, as well as full design of interior spaces including media center, cafeteria, auditorium, gymnasium, and common spaces.
