SMMUSD to Hold Online Community Meeting About Malibu High Building Design

SMMUSD Administrative Offices

The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District will hold a Zoom meeting from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8, to gather public input about the design process of a new building for the perennially under-construction Malibu High School. 

A press release from the district invited “students, parents and community members” to “receive an update and provide input” on the design of the building that will be constructed on the site of the former Juan Cabrillo Elementary School. District officials and representatives from the two architecture firms involved with the project will speak. The meeting will be passcode-protected. 

Funded by bonds from 2018’s Measure M, the new high school building “will include well-lit classrooms, a state-of-the-art kitchen and café, outdoor learning areas and pitch spaces connected by common areas designed to add to the collaborative learning environment,” according to the press release. “The building will also include high school administration offices.”

Questions may be directed to senior design manager Barbara Chiavelli at
