Jackson Schools

Jackson, TN

LRK is currently working on two different schools for Jackson Madison School District through Jackson Community Redevelopment Agency and Healthy Community LLC. LRK was charged with the renovation of Jackson Central-Merry (JCM) Junior and Senior High School. Closed since 2015, the school is primed to receive major interior and exterior restoration. Soon, a new entry and gateway will signal the JCM Rebirth while highlighting the school’s rich history. The JCM campus will also host a sleek new Fieldhouse and Community Amenity that will offer court space for sporting events, tournaments and all-school assembly with concessions, retractable bleachers and locker rooms. Madison High School will be a new three-story school brick structure with a central core and broad communicating stair and atrium nestled into the historic Art& Crafts neighborhood prominently sited at the entrance to U of M Lambuth Campus, will offer dual-enrollment  and the opportunity to collaborate on the broader campus.  Both school facilities will strive to promote learning and innovation, flooded with natural light and punctuated with bold floor finishes and wall graphics which echo the school spirit to greet scholars and guests alike.
