To uphold its reputation as one of California's Distinguished Schools, Rancho Cucamonga High School entrusted GO Architects, Inc. to replace six portable classrooms with properly equipped, safe, permanent construction classrooms. The new two-story classroom building doubles the number of classrooms within the footprint of the existing portables, without impacting the adjacent facilities. The building includes modern A/V and computer technology, along with expanded digital connectivity; a lockable cabinet for storage of classroom laptops and charging stations; larger windows and more controlled daylight in the classrooms, improving the interior environment for students and faculty; and updated materials that meet the District's current durability and sustainability standards. In keeping with the original design concept for the "Italian hill town" campus, the elevator tower doubles as a clock tower, serving as a wayfinding feature and gathering place.
Thanks in part to the recently built two-story classroom building, Rancho Cucamonga High School continues to develop as one of the state's safest, most contemporary, and academically sound institutions.
