Miguel Contreras Learning Complex is a 72-classroom, seven-building school campus just west of downtown Los Angeles. The new facility included ammenities that would also benefit other area high schools.

Construction of the 231,000 square-foot Miguel Contreras Learning Complex involved the re-development of more than 19 acres and construction of seven new buildings. The buildings, which serve academic and athletic functions, vary in height from two to four stories and include a performing arts auditorium, food court, and multi-media library. A highly-landscaped central courtyard is carefully integrated into the campus to create an urban village of learning. The Clark team also built a three-story parking structure. 

The Miguel Contreras Learning Complex can accommodate 1,713 students. In order to serve a number of area high schools, a special emphasis was put on the development of sports facilities, including two large gymnasiums, tennis and basketball courts, an Olympic size swimming pool, a full-feature stadium for football, soccer and track, and baseball and softball fields.
