LEGO High School - Modular Design
It is about time to add a High School to the LEGO Modular buildings. This 2-story high school was inspired by 1920s-1930s architecture for school buildings. The high school is modeled after a 1930 high school in the first school district where I taught biology. The school building is built wider than tall, typical of most schools.
The footprint of the school building takes up 48x32 studs, the same as Assembly Square. With the park and tables area, the whole modular takes up 64x32 studs. There is also an additional option for two sidewalks wrapping the building that allow for the high school to be placed at the end of a city block (see pictures with Pet Shop and Townhouse modulars).
This Ideas post is a resubmission of mine that was able to get to 4,655 supporters last time. I took comments into consideration and have done some exterior and interior redesigns.

- Corner Building - The 1st configuration is seen in the main picture with a corner courtyard. This includes one 16x32 baseplate to create the courtyard, which includes 2 picnic tables and 2 bicycle racks that can hold up to 4 bicycles. Bicycles are stabilized by a sloped tile piece that fits under the kickstand of the bicycle. A brick built tree finishes off this corner piece.

This includes two 8x32 baseplates to create the wrap around sidewalks. Also, includes a striped school bus loading zone on one of the wrap around sidewalks.
