Edward Little High School

The new Edward Little High School replaces an existing 1950s school building. It provides 280,000-sq. ft. of 21st century learning spaces, integrated Career Technical Programs, 1,200 seat auditorium and a full complement of athletic fields.

The school will serve as a Satellite Career Technical Center – the largest in Maine – to the neighboring Lewiston Regional Technical Center. This partnership allows Auburn to integrate a variety of programs and represents the State’s commitment to engage learners across a range of disciplines.

Design vision that starts in the community

The design process included a series of visioning and programming sessions, led by Harriman and New Vista, that resulted in guiding principles and design patterns to support the educational goals of the Auburn community.

The final vision was for a “new safe, collaborative, vibrant learning community that is welcoming to all. A place where all learners build aspirations, strive for excellence, and develop agency, personal and interpersonal skills that fosters individual success and enhances the community. A dynamic and flexible state-of-the-art community hub that fosters experienced-based learning.”

We’d love to work on a project together.
