CAMPUS INVESTMENT: UPPER SCHOOL ACADEMICS
The next phase of infrastructure investment on the Upper School campus is essential to meet the needs our our growing school.
This expansion will include the construction of 30 new spaces for learning: 9 new classrooms, 4 team study rooms, a Learning Center, a Writing Center, 12 science-focused labs, prep rooms, and CLabs combining classroom and laboratory spaces.
This investment will provide students with the space and tools for discipline-specific inquiry within the sciences as well as creative, collaborative work across subjects.
