VIEW ALL PROJECTS

The $120 million Discovery Building located at Santa Monica High School (SAMOHI) opened in August 2021. The overall campus improvements were part of a bond funded through Measure SMS for the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District, allowing the district to issue $485 million in bonds.

The new academic complex transforms SAMOHI’s north campus. The five-story, 280,000 sq. ft. complex is an open-plan structure hosting 38 classrooms, 288 parking spaces, an indoor-outdoor cafeteria and rooftop classrooms. The project was designed to embrace Open Building principles which allow for flexibility in the K-12 education experience. This 1,200-student facility aims to prepare its students for a dynamic future amongst social, cultural and academic change.

Other key features of the new building include an Olympic-size swimming pool, which will be home to SAMOHI’s first-rate swimming and water polo programs, as well as community and youth swimming opportunities.
