The additions and renovations to North and South High Schools were the first major physical education, athletic, and community-use improvements to Sheboygan, Wisconsin’s two 9th-12th grade high schools since their construction in the 1960s.
Each high school received a new gymnasium with a 160-meter indoor track facility that can accommodate four gym classes simultaneously. The new gymnasiums each have seating for approximately 2,800 spectators. Both projects included four locker rooms-two team locker rooms and tow that serve as community locker rooms. North High included 111,057 square feet of new construction, renovation and finish upgrades costing $12.9 million.
Also, each school’s addition included new cafeteria/commons with elevated performance platforms, concession rooms, school stores, serving kitchens and server areas, and out-of-season coaches offices.
The existing cafeteria areas in both schools were renovated into weight/cardio/aerobic rooms (approximately 10,000 square feet each) and were partially outfitted with funds the District obtained from a Federal PEP Grant.
A renewed focus on life-long fitness was a major focus of this project. Providing students as well community members with access to cardiovascular and weight equipment, gymnasium facilities, and health training programs.
