Interface Engineering is providing Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing Engineering, Fire/Life Safety, and Energy design services for the new Meridian High School. The innovative project is being designed to be Net-Zero energy ready and will serve a student body of 1,200 with a maximum capacity of 1,500. Design of the five-story high school also involves connecting the building to the adjacent Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School to create a new unified campus.

Programmatic elements for the campus include traditional classrooms and space for Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) education. The project also features a kitchen to be shared between the schools; an outdoor dining terrace overlooking the athletic fields; and a rooftop teaching terrace. The football field, track, and baseball fields will remain, while a new softball complex, multi-purpose field, and tennis courts will be added.
