The 2nd floor is dedicated entirely for Arts, Design, Drama, Music and the new Creativity Center (see image 2). The music room is now integrated into the main school campus, and the entire floor encompasses many areas for students to build their creative skills, including the new Textiles room (twice the size of the present Needlework room), plus 2D- and 3D- Art Rooms.
The 3rd floor is exclusively a place for Middle School students to call home. It will include new 2 Open Areas, (G5-6, and G7-8) with lockers and a common area for each group.
The 4th floor will have 5 Science Labs (see image 3), mathematics classrooms., a larger and more practically designed Food Lab with more kitchen units than before, and a purpose built, temperature-controlled, sound-proofed Server Room that will service the whole school.
Located on 2F, this center will be 3 x the size of the current space, used for MakerSpace, Robotics and all MultiMedia. It will contain an enlarged Green Room, recording booths, and interview sections. Located directly across from the new Textiles Room, 2D- and 3D- Art Rooms, it offers an expanded space for students to really build and integrate their creative skills.
Located on 4F, the lab is 1.5 x the size of the current largest lab. The spacious room includes separate lab and work sections, with rearrangeable work tables. In total, the Labs Floor will have 5 state-of-the-art labs, as opposed to the current 4.

The rooms are lighter and brighter, with full walls of windows, modern lighting, and windows into the corridor.
