Bear Creek High School

Lakewood, Colorado

Bear Creek High School is a new high school complex which was built on the site of the old campus. Because the site functioned as a fully-occupied high school through all of the construction activities, the project took over two years and multiple phases to complete. 

The site was designed to have the feeling of a college campus, with a grand central pedestrian plaza surrounded on three sides by curved building walls and a plaza for athletic fields, connected by a tree-lined walkway promenade. Formal and informal gathering areas are provided throughout the site. 

The site offers many athletic opportunities, including football, track, soccer, baseball, softball, tennis, and a synthetic turf multi-use field. The project architect was an MOA Architectural Partnership/RTA Architects joint venture for Jeffco Public Schools.
