Proving to attract students and teachers, alike this high school prototype features a four-story academic classroom tower and takes advantage of a 112-acre site.

Known for its wall of windows wrapping its classroom tower, Apex Friendship High School boasts a two-story administration area adjacent to the front entrance and an 850-seat auditorium that can be isolated from the rest of the facility and used after hours by the community. Art students enjoy access to an outdoor art patio and music rooms are conveniently located adjacent to the auditorium and performing spaces.

This is an efficient, well-designed building. Our media center is the nicest in the county.
