ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — University High School has been nominated for a state award recognizing excellence in K-12 architecture, Orange County Public Schools said Monday.
A panel of Florida architects nominated UHS as part of AIA Florida’s People’s Choice competition, which features 14 Florida schools.
OCPS said the Orlando high school is the only nominee for this award from Central Florida.
The school, which opened in east Orange County in 1990, resembles a Spanish village with a central plaza, small courtyard and red barrel tile roofs.
UHS was renovated in 2012 but has maintained its Mediterranean character based on Frizzell Architects’ design.
Voting in the competition is open through July 29 and can be done here.
