-A A +A
c. 1987–1988, Minch, Ritter, Voelkers, Architects

The state school program provides this tiny community with a large, modern school building serving a handful of students in grades kindergarten through high school. The award-winning, distinctively angular wooden building is located high up a long flight of steps from the street on a site leveled at great expense.
