“FLINT connected on a human level beyond any other group, they understood our motives, our desires, and our vision. The moment they spoke personally about their own learning and how it can impact future students learning, it was like FLINT was meant to be apart of this project.”

Meraki High School | Fair Oaks, CA
This 10,550-square-foot alternative high school was built at the site of a former elementary school. The non-traditional classrooms hosts an innovative teaching program based on project-based, student-driven subjects. In addition to flexible classrooms, the high school has a “maker” workshop for woodworking, metal work, and robotics. Study is self-directed based on the students’ interest and the learning spaces are designed to engage students and allow them the opportunity to set their own course of study.
Demolition of interior spaces in three classroom buildings and two sets of restrooms, and reconstruction of finishes in those spaces. Exterior site demolition of out-of-tolerance concrete walkways, bringing these into current ADA compliance, constructing a new entrance courtyard with seat walls, the placement of decorative boulders for outdoor learning, and new landscaping along street frontages.
