Northeast Magnet is the Wichita School District’s first new high school in more than 40 years. The 800 student, state-of-the-art high school was constructed on a 100 acre site and greatly relieved overcrowding at other area high schools.

The school is divided into three main areas: a two-story academic area, a fine arts suite, and a physical education/athletics wing. A ‘Main Street’ corridor allows easy access from one end of the school to the other, culminating in a large Commons area. Alcoves, along the main corridor, serve as mini commons to give students additional places to gather during lunch. Other features of the building include a secure entry, a 900-seat auditorium, a modern library/media center, and career-technical education classrooms. The athletic spaces include a competition gym, walking track, mezzanine, swimming pool and a practice gym reinforced to act as a storm shelter.

The 225,000 s.f. school was designed to optimize energy use and reduce long term costs, and incorporates many features found in other LEED certified facilities. The layout of Northeast Magnet allows for future expansion or conversion to a traditional high school, complete with outdoor athletic facilities.
