David Hill's Master Facility Plan
The new David Hill CLC creates an inviting educational environment for students and the community. The 2.71-acre site is located between Archwood and Austin avenues, east of Erskine Avenue. The new building forms a sweeping "J" shape, with the main entrance inside the curve. Visitors enter David Hill from Archwood as a colonnade of trees line the drive. A sloping roof opens up at the main entrance. Stairs are full-height, glass-enclosed and adjacent to the entry.

The two-story classroom wing includes larger kindergarten rooms, which protrude beyond the second floor and have curved exterior walls and higher ceilings. The roof slopes at the classrooms, administrative area, media center and band room. The classroom wing is secured from the entry lobby, allowing community access to the art and band rooms, media center, gymnasium, and cafetorium after school hours. The new David Hill includes a gearless elevator, sized for handicapped access.

David Hill was built in the southeast corner to maximize play areas and parking. The building, parking, playgrounds and play field are close by. The playground and play field are located along Archwood. Retaining walls run east to west and north along Archwood. Residential properties line the north and south, while a combination of commercial and residential properties line the east.

Architects
All designs are the work of an architectural firm from one of six firms, which comprise the Akron Architectural Group. AAG architects work with Akron Public Schools architects on each site. The architectural firm that designed the David Hill Community Learning Center was TC Architects. Gary Reyna was the Akron Public Schools liaison.
