Upper Arlington High School

The new Upper Arlington High School

Design Features

395,000 square feet of learning space — over 100,000 square feet more than the old building, accommodating the growing student population.

Three-story academic building — including 8,000 square feet of mezzanine space and multiple collaborative “commons” areas.

Golden Bear Boulevard — a 50-foot-wide hallway, providing ample seating and open space to move freely. (See virtual fly-through video at the right.) 

Multiple outdoor learning spaces — including a dining plaza and green rooftop courtyard.

Expanded arts and athletics facilities — including:
  • A 1,500-seat auditorium;
  • A black box theater;
  • A 10-lane natatorium;
  • A three-court multi-purpose gym; and
  • A varsity gym featuring one main court or three practice courts. 

UAHS stadium — a new track, new home bleachers and press box, new concession stands, additional storage and new north entrance.
Foundation Room — to be privately funded through the capital campaign, honoring Upper Arlington Schools’ rich tradition and connecting community members, alumni, current students and staff. 
Please note that all design plans are subject to minor adjustments.
