Versailles Exempted Village School District commissioned Freytag & Associates, Inc. for a new school building serving grades K-12. This large new facility is designed so that the District can continue its current successful teaching methods and build upon them in the future.  The building is divided into three smaller school sections: Elementary, Middle and High School. The new school houses up to 1,400 students in Kindergarten through High School and covers 226,310 square feet. The center of the school is the media center.  This large open space is divided into three separate reading rooms to correspond to the different school sections.  Large North-facing windows provide pleasant indirect natural light for reading and studying.  The auditorium is a performance space with the ability to seat 450, utilized by the school and the community.  This space is fully equipped for state-of-the-art sound and lighting for theatrical and music performances with a fully rigged stage for a wide variety of performances and special events.  The building houses two gymnasiums with large divider curtains that can be raised and lowered as needed.  Other spaces include two large art rooms, a full service kitchen, student locker rooms with showers, central storage area with dock leveler, a large vocal music room, an instrumental music room, and four computer labs.  The project was complete on time and on budget.
