Noblesville Schools recently dedicated a first-of-its kind community center, opening new flexible usage options not just for Noblesville Schools, but for all residents.
The Noblesville Schools Community Center (NSCC) is located off of Field Drive between Noblesville High School and Noblesville East Middle School, and will provide dedicated space for the district’s enhanced alternative education program “Millers Success Academy,” as well as adult education classes, public meeting space, and indoor team practice space.
The NSCC will also be used by the district’s special education partners at the Hamilton Boone Madison County Co-op for their “Limitless” program, which provides ongoing education for young adults with special needs.
The building has a kitchen and large multi-purpose space that make it ideal for community dinners and receptions and is located right next to Noblesville High School’s new stadium, which is expected to be completed in 2022.
“With the community scheduling more than 14,000 hours of programming every year in our facilities, and with one of the largest high schools in the state, this additional space in Noblesville was desperately needed and we expect it to be a very popular area for events,” shared Dr. Beth Niedermeyer, superintendent for Noblesville Schools.
The center has been over two years in the making and was completed on time and on budget thanks to the teamwork of dozens of people, including designer CSO Architects and construction manager The Hagerman Group.
Highlights of the facility include:
- Over 15,000 square feet of total space
- Two large classroom areas
- Four offices
- Onsite kitchen
- Technology learning spaces
- 7,500 square foot open space with hard surface flooring, technology equipment & high ceilings that can be used as one open space or separated for multiple groups
The build cost the district $6 million and has been financed through a bond without the use of referendum dollars or an increase in the tax rate. Per state guidelines, the bond cannot be used to fund staff, programs or student needs.
“We can’t wait to share this new space with the community and for everyone to begin enjoying it,” added Niedermeyer.
The district has made sponsorships, including naming rights, available for the event space. Organizations interested in learning more should contact the district’s marketing and communications department.
