For more than 80 years, North Kansas City High School (NKCHS) has been the heart of education in Kansas City’s Northland. Providing relevant, rigorous, and innovative educational opportunities for students has always been at the school’s core. Henderson Engineers is designing the renovation of the landmark school, which includes ensuring NKCHS is net-zero energy ready. We’re helping the school offset its annual consumption with design plans that call for lower energy equipment.

E-learning classrooms, a performing arts auditorium, and music rooms that deliver superior acoustics, are also part of the renovation. In addition, indoor athletics and commons areas, as well as a library media center equipped with the latest technology, are included in the project. The high school will stay open during the estimated 18-month construction process. When complete, the NKCHS faculty and 1,700 students will be teaching and learning in high-efficiency and cutting-edge classrooms that stay true to the school’s decades-long educational tenants.
