Next-Gen Learning

DLR Group believes a 21st century school fully integrates curriculum with technology. The outcome is passionate, self-learners who use problem-solving skills to transform school into a collaborative working environment. The Association for Learning Environments recognized the design of Marysville (Wash.) Getchell High School and Joplin (Mo.) Interim High School with the James D. MacConnell Award in 2011 and 2012 for the outstanding planning of education facilities. DLR Group is the only firm to win the MacConnell Award in consecutive years.
