North Salem High School

Salem, OR

New additions to one of Salem’s oldest schools serve to unify the campus through improved functionality.

The North Salem High School was originally constructed in 1936 making it one of Salem’s oldest standing school buildings.  A major overhaul but not replacement of this iconic neo-classical building was approved by the voters as part of the 2018 Salem Keizer School Bond.  The improvements included the addition of 20 new classrooms, two career technical education spaces, new athletic facilities, and a new commercial kitchen and commons.  3J Consulting provided land use planning assistance to process the entitlements for the much-needed expansion. 3J worked closely with the architectural team at BRIC Architects to successfully guide the project through the City’s Land Use Review process.
