We envision our learning community to be a joyful place that nurtures the love of learning by providing equitable opportunities for all students to discover their passion as they collaboratively engage in authentic activities in an environment where they feel physically and emotionally safe.




What is the overall plan for the future of our Schools? 

     HIGH SCHOOL (grades 9-12)

Students in grades 9 – 12 will attend high school on Curtis Corner Road. The existing Curtis Corner School will be reinvented to create an educational environment with a mix of learning studios, informal and flexible spaces to cater to various learning modalities through a combination of outdoor learning, hands-on experiences, sustainability, and collaboration. The land and fields surrounding the school have influenced the project to provide a community-focused design that blends with the outdoors. The design also includes additions that will be filled with natural light, purposeful, adaptable, and inspiring to students while connecting them to nature. The school will include a 1,000 seat auditorium, a new gymnasium/fitness center, and a community room.


    MIDDLE SCHOOL (grades 6-8)

Broad Rock Middle School will be expanded so that it will be able to increase from two grade levels to three while reducing the student transitions during middle-level years. The two mirrored additions will provide space to create a middle school that will support three grade levels housed in learning communities. The design is centered on an environmental focus, cost-effective design, and a learning environment that can support multiple learning modalities. A learning community normally has no corridors and no typical classrooms. Instead, it has learning studios for direct instruction, a large common space, a teacher collaboration suite, and various other areas for student-directed learning. The goal is to create environments and experiences in which they can connect with their innate curiosity, be inspired by nature, and celebrate the joy of learning.


   ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS (grades PreK-5)


Each elementary school will have a transformation of the current library into a dynamic and powerful place for learning and growing. The program focuses on ways to use current spending to modify the existing library space. The adaptation will offer the biggest return in terms of student learning as the space will become a central, reflective, and collaboration area that can be used by all. We know that the library media maker space will support all modalities of learning. The improvements will include increasing natural light, a maker space, café areas for collaborative learning, STEAM hubs, DaVinci studios, curiosity centers, quiet, inviting reading areas with abundant soft, comfortable seating, and inspiring colors and design that will become the heartbeat of each building. (Currently, all of our elementary schools are grades K-4.  This plan does move our grade 5 back to the elementary schools. We also will focus on Wakefield Elementary School being able to support our Early Childhood Program / Integrated PreK.).
