American Canyon High School – Outdoor Pool

American Canyon, CA

The Napa Valley Unified School District opted to build “green” with a certification from the Coalition for High Performance Schools (LEED equivalent in the education design world).
American Canyon High School includes a library; administration; a 400-seat theatre; a 2,500-seat gymnasium; four small learning communities; several specialized academy buildings; and an outdoor swimming pool.

American Canyon High School, opened August 2010, is a pioneer in the growing movement to fund and build healthy high performance schools.
Sustainable design elements include a one-megawatt photovoltaic system, recycled and rapidly renewable materials, ground loop geothermal system to minimize heating and cooling, and abundant daylight to reduce dependence on artificial lighting.

The swimming pool amenities include:

  • Outdoor 9,850 sq. ft. 25-yard competition pool with 16 cross course lanes
  • 25-meter all deep competition water polo rink with 1- and 3-meter springboards
  • 10 lane scoreboard with in-deck timing system
  • The swimming pool heating system is supplemented with PVC solar heating panels located on an adjacent roof
