K-12 Education

McMillan Pazdan Smith has emerged as a regional leader in planning, architectural programming and design of educational environments for students of all ages. Numerous projects for public and private clients represent a thorough understanding of issues facing k-12 facilities, including technology integration, student safety, sustainability and building versatility. In 2015, McMillan Pazdan Smith, in association with Fielding Nair International, designed a new state of the art STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) school and eventually was named the national James D. MacConnell Award winner by the Council of Education Facility Planners International (CEFPI). Our designers understand project based learning methodologies and how designs must respond to diverse learning styles and cultures.
