The College Preparatory School
Teaching Through Building
A collection of new academic buildings fosters a sustainable, inclusive campus.
Mission Driven Design
The College Preparatory School is known for its forward-looking mission, one that encompasses environmental stewardship and community engagement. Tucked within Oakland’s hilly Rockridge neighborhood, the independent high school has long demanded a level of innovation to make the most of its sloping topography and wooded grounds. The brief for JENSEN, to replace outdated portable classrooms with modern academic buildings, ultimately unlocked broader opportunities to advance College Prep’s vision for a sustainable campus that teaches by example.
