    High School Design Award

    by ArchitectureWeek

    At more than 500,000 square feet (46,000 square meters), Chesterton High School is a state-of-the-art facility that accommodates nearly 2,000 students in grades 9-12 as well as many specialty program areas.

    For the school's design, the Celina, Ohio architecture firm Fanning/Howey Associates, Inc. has been awarded the 2001 William W. Caudill Citation by American School & University magazine.

    Chesterton High School is large not only in area, but also in its diversity of programs and its commitment to the local community in its planning and use. Completion of the high school is a success story for the people of Chesterton, Indiana.

    The interactive planning and design effort involved a cross-section of the community, as well as students, faculty, and administrative representatives. Through a series of town meetings, over 200 people were directly involved in planning the school .

    The building owner, Duneland School Corporation, anticipates extensive community use of the facilities, including activities sponsored by the local parks and recreation department and senior citizen groups.   >>>
