Middle and High School Learning Commons

The MS/HS LC is available to students and teachers throughout the day for both academic and social purposes.  There is a library area with tables and seminar rooms for quiet study and collaboration, and a cafe area for refreshments and socializing.  We have copiers, printers and production materials, and a tech help bar.
