“Natural defenses” against potential active shooter situations are built into the design of a new high school in West Michigan.

The $48 million Fruitport High School was designed with the threat of active shooters in mind, said Fruitport Community Schools Superintendent Bob Szymoniak.

If, “God forbid,” there ever is a shooting event at the high school, there are built-in places for students and staff to hide because design elements shorten sightlines and provide “shadow zones,” he said.

“It is important to do this work in such a way that it is not a constant reminder of the potential of an active shooter,” Szymoniak said. “We want students coming to school excited to learn, not in fear of what could happen because of an active shooter.”

Construction began in March 2018 – shortly after the Feb. 14, 2018, shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people and injured 17 more

The mostly new high school is expected to be finished by August 2021; it is about 50 percent finished.

If only there were a simple, more effective way to protect people from mass shooters not only in high schools, but also in movie theaters, malls, and in their vehicles. 

Why is America so damn broken?
