K-12 Education: High Schools & Technical Centers

Morse High School

New High School Construction

Lavallee Brensinger Architects worked closely with the Department of Education, Regional School Unit 1 (RSU1), Morse High School, and Bath Regional Career & Technical Center (CTE) to define a vision, educational plan, and integrated design solution for their new sustainable educational environment. The new 186,658 SF school serves over 650 high school and 277 career and technical students. Providing shared learning opportunities, educational planning fully integrated both core curriculum and CTE programs into a STEAM environment.


The centrally located learning / dining common serves as the “heart” of the school while also connecting the library, CTE programs, core subjects, athletics, and the performing arts. All learning places and spaces were designed to easily adapt with advances in technology, equipment, and educational delivery. Shared RSU administrative spaces encourage close educational collaboration while also providing safe and secure building access.
