Robert L. Duffy High School, which will open its doors this fall in Phoenix, is a different kind of school. While it does offer core curriculum classes in English, math, social studies and science, it also has career-focused classes designed to help students get an entry-level job in the field of their choice. It’s fitting, therefore, that this innovative curriculum will be housed in innovative buildings—three monolithic dome school buildings to be exact.
Designed by Crandall Design Group and constructed by Dome Technology, the buildings are being painted to resemble planets. There’s Earth, Jupiter and Saturn – yes, rings and all. When completed, they will make up the newest campus of Career Success Schools , a group of charter schools that opened its doors in the 2000-2001 academic year. The Phoenix New Times recently reported on the new construction project. Click here to see pictures.
