Samohi Tree NurseryBranching Out: Samohi Celebrates Arbor Day with New Tree Nursery
Happy Arbor Day! Santa Monica High School is celebrating Arbor Day by introducing Branching Out, the student maintained tree and plant learning nursery on campus. The goal of the nursery is to engage student groups to grow the majority of the trees and high value shrubs from seeds and seedlings that will eventually be planted throughout all phases of the 25-year campus plan. "The campus plan is a rejuvenation of the entire campus to create a modern learning facility that better utilizes the limited space on campus and creates a sense of belonging," described Alan Braatvedt, director of Santa Monica High School projects.

Project Overview
Construction on the Science and Technology Building, the Innovation Building, Centennial Plaza, parking lot and ramp, softball field, bicycle parking area and landscaping began in 2011 and have all been completed.

The Santa Monica High School project reflects CHPS (Collaborative for High Performance Schools) criteria through improved day lighting, indoor air quality and natural ventilation, reduced water use and maximized energy efficiency.

Technology
Seventy-six (76) existing classrooms were upgraded to the district’s new technology standards. The standard includes a projector and screen, document camera, DVD player, and a sound system with a wireless microphone. The school has been upgraded to 1Gpbs networking and campus-wide Wifi. The telephone systems were replaced with a district-wide IP telephone system (VOIP). Thirty-eight (38) math classrooms and twenty (20) special education classrooms received one teacher and eight student laptops. Eighteen (18) science classrooms also received one teacher and sixteen student laptops. Wireless access points were installed throughout the campus and the phone system was replaced with a new IP telephone system. The campus network infrastructure was upgraded to one-gigabit bandwidth to support the wireless access and telephone upgrades.
