Leggett's Master Facility Plan
Stepping into the Leggett Community Learning Center, visitors are welcomed by bright, inviting colors. Windows let in natural light, engaging and inspiring students. The 55,900-square-foot facility is wired with the latest in learning technology, including classroom projectors, smart boards and high-speed Internet. This enhances teaching and learning to new levels never experienced in former classrooms.
The Leggett Community Learning Center reflects a distinct attention to detail, which includes bright, colorful ceiling panels and floor tiles, large windows, and neatly arranged classrooms. The community learning center will be available to residents for a wide variety of activities both after school hours and during the summer.
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 designing the
Leggett Community Learning Center was Hasenstab Architects (Eric Beach, project architect). John
George was the Akron Public Schools liaison.
