Students, teachers begin utilizing brand-new HHS Library Media Center

Hampton High School’s highly anticipated Library Media Center addition is now officially open for students to work collaboratively and to continue to engage in world-class learning. This addition was redesigned to support the evolving academic needs of Hampton High School’s high-quality educational programs, and contains several exciting spaces for students: 

  • Library Media Center — This center contains four huddle rooms that allow students to work collaboratively on projects. It will also have a technology hub that allows students to receive technology support during the school day. The library space will include various forms of seating for students, including high-top tables, standard tables, and soft seating.

  • Conceptual Thinking Lab — This adjacent space includes a multitude of whiteboards and flexible furniture to accommodate classes working on creative problem solving.

  • Café Area — The Busy Bean has been relocated from its former location in the cafeteria to the newly designed Café. The Busy Bean is a student-run business endeavor supported by the HHS Special Education department. It affords students an opportunity to practice, develop and refine vocational skills in an actual business.

  • Flex Studio — This studio allows students in the high school’s video production classes to use state-of-the-art lighting to film projects. Additionally, this space will be open for other classes so that students can create multimedia projects.

  • Additional Classrooms — The new addition will have two new classrooms, one for the English department and one for the Special Education department. The English classroom is attached to a large yearbook room that is enclosed in glass so that students can see the yearbook staff create the yearbook using digital photography.
