St. John XXII High School Student Center
The St. John XXIII Student Center is a new 25,000 SF addition to the Saint John XXIII High School in Katy, TX.
The Branch School campus supports pre-k through grade 8 on a 12-acre site, and master planning was completed around an existing campus and buildings. In the Visioning and Master Planning stage, Kirksey engaged teachers, students, parents, and administration to envision their campus and integrate their curriculum, the school vision, and mission into the campus and building design. With the awareness that the outdoor learning spaces were important the campus and buildings were designed to ensure optimum airflow and shading. Detention was incorporated into a campus ecosystem and every indoor learning space had access to outdoor learning, natural daylight, and views.
