High Tech High Mesa

High Tech High Mesa, located in Clairemont Mesa, encourages the growth of its students through bright design incorporating natural elements into its innovative learning environment. Exposed sloped wood beams provide for raised ceilings with plenty of windows spanning to the ceilings, causing classrooms and hallways to be bathed in natural light.

The high school is anchored by a high-volume lobby area which speaks to the tenets of High Tech’s design philosophy – height, light, and structure. The remaining building is occupied by administrative areas, pairs of classrooms connected by operable partitions, and studio spaces defined by large folding door systems, enabling the open floor plan to extend outside.
