Ysleta ISD - Eastwood High School

MNK with DLR Group was the K-12 design team of choice selected for Ysleta Independent School District’s flagship school campus transformation, Eastwood High School. Along with the renovation of a handful of existing structures, most notably the Bob Lesley Gymnasium named after the only coach to lead an El Paso high school basketball team to a state championship; this new state of the art high school will feature a cutting edge 155,819 SF Academic Facility for students, faculty, and teachers. The project also includes a 2,000 seat Gymnasium which, along with the Bob Lesley Gym, will not only serve student athletes during and after school hours, but will also be the main UIL competition gymnasium at Eastwood for basketball, volleyball and wrestling. Additionally, the existing theater will be transformed into a Black Box | theater education space, and a new 600 seat Auditorium will serve as the districts first and only UIL competition theater - filling a void desperately needed by the district.  The entire campus, designed to emulate the feeling of a community college campus, is centered on a multi-functional outdoor space. Entrance into the campus’ core (a former parking lot) can be gained through two wide, welcoming openings into the heart of the facility, both open during school opening and closing, and closed with immaculately designed rolling screens after hours and throughout the school day

Size: 258,468 SF New Construction | 43,072 SF Renovation
