Redlands East Valley High School is a comprehensive high school located on a 57 acre sloping site. Designed to house 2,500 students but currently housing almost 3,500 students, the school includes administration facilities, media center, theater and performing arts facility, multipurpose facility, gymnasium, fine arts building and various specialized educational classrooms. Site improvements include a pool facility, track and football field, tennis courts, basketball courts, and baseball and softball fields.
Designing a new high school for a city whose community shares a magnificent history of pride and tradition was an incredible challenge for the developer. The participatory design process included school-board members, administrative staff, teachers, students, parents, maintenance staff and community members.
Another key element in the design was the focus on the media center and its application of technology. As the use of technology has become more integrated into the educational delivery process, it was natural to view the media center as the hub of the campus in concept and in practical use. When entering the campus, one immediately understands the importance of the media center and its relationship to the campus. A primary circulation path that circles the media center leads visitors to all the major facilities.
The campus imagery reflects a serious academic setting constructed of timeless and durable materials. Concrete masonry, exposed structural steel, glass and metal roofs make up the majority of the building exteriors. Many practical considerations, such as security, use of buildings after hours, circulation of students and daily operational issues led to the physical layout of the building spaces. However, the entire campus is held together by the exterior use of space and clear organization.
The school cost US$35,000,000.00 (41 million 1995) to build (or $132.58 per square foot), and was completed in September, 1997. The roof of the Media Center Library was designed to look like an opened book. The performing arts building was designed to look like a piano, complete with black and white tiles on the floor in the piano lab. The Performing Arts Theater is named in honor of Harry Blackstone Jr., a famous stage magician who lived in Redlands
The Associated Student Body (ASB) in Room D-148 of REV coordinates all student activities, as well as overseeing and approving the financial transactions for the school in accordance to California state laws. This class, known as student government, is under the direction of the Student Activities Director, and its members are elected and selected for one year terms.
