Design Features

Distributed amongst the two floors are six learning neighborhoods organized around a double-height media center that serves as a central hub of activity and learning for the entire school. Each learning neighborhood consists of flexible classrooms in a range of sizes, from group gathering zones to independent study rooms. Each space then opens into the collaborative commons area, allowing students and faculty to feel more connected with one another. The addition also houses a spacious gymnasium connected by a light-filled corridor that provides a welcoming link between the new and old. The new corridor also doubles as an art gallery for the students to show off their work.

The renovation of the elementary school includes the dining commons area that is linked to the gallery corridor. This strategic adjacency allows natural light to flood into the dining space, creating a more pleasant, calming atmosphere. The shared music/art classrooms and the administration area were both reconfigured to accommodate a growing student body.

As the design lead, Moody Nolan collaborated with Perkins&Will to deliver a school on budget and on time for the start of the new school year. The new addition and updated facilities not only promote a more flexible learning environment but are equipped to accommodate the projected enrollment many years into the future.
