Helen Arnold's Master Facility Plan
The Helen E. Arnold Community
Learning Center is a two-story educational facility at Vernon
Odom Boulevard and Rhodes Avenue. A masonry veneer wraps the
exterior in two rich, natural brick shades. A sweeping curve on
the west side of the building envelops the administrative suite,
media center and art room. The curve is penetrated by the main
entrance and leads to a corridor bathed in sunlight courtesy of
clerestory windows. From this corridor, students can access the
8,000-square-foot gymnasium and student dining areas. The Helen
E. Arnold CLC shares the site with the Urban League, but the
facilities will function independent of one another.
All designs are the work of an
architectural firm from one of six firms, which comprise the
Akron Architectural Group. AAG architects work with Akron Public
Schools architects on each site. The architectural firm
that designed the Helen E. Arnold Community Learning Center was Moody
