Building for Our Children & Community

In 2017-18, 40 years after the school's founding, we decided the time was right for an expansion that would nurture our thriving community, better house educational activities for our children, and meet the nuanced demands of our long-term needs. Born from parent feedback in 2013, the campus expansion has made this vision a reality. 

The expansion

We worked with Scott | Edwards Architecture to maintain the integrity of our purpose-built campus and the original design of Thomas Hacker. The new gallery/entry, community room, multi-purpose room, kitchen, tutoring rooms and an all-season sports court are all designed to nurture our learning community and create space for children, teachers, parents, alumni and the administrative staff.
