San Rafael High School - MACK Building

San Rafael City Schools

HY Architects has been working with San Rafael City Schools for numerous years. Our work commenced with the development of a District-wide master plan. The master plan included extensive stakeholder meetings and addressed parity amongst all school sites as well as modernizations and additions in order to support a 21st Century Learning environment.


At San Rafael High we are designing a new Student Commons Building that includes:

• Student / public meeting space

• A central outdoor quad

• Resource specialists’ offices including tutoring and counseling spaces

• Health suites

• General classrooms

• New administrative offices / conference rooms / reception space

• Centralized kitchen facility to prepare/distribute meals for the entire District

• A new continuation high school for the district – Madrone High


The Student Commons project is a recent winner of the 2019 Excellence in Design Award, California’s Coalition for Adequate School Housing (CASH).
