The Board of Trustees retained Mithün, an architectural firm with significant experience working with independent schools. Mithün has designed a beautiful, state-of-the-art building that will create more, and new kinds of spaces to support our organic approach to teaching and learning.

Throughout the building, there will be new flexibility for students to reflect on their own, partner with other students or teachers, challenge each other in small groups, or come together as an entire Upper School community. Ten new classrooms have almost twice the square footage of those in Gracemont. A flexible, multipurpose room can accommodate lectures, student performances, and all-school meetings, or be partitioned for more intimate experiences.

“There are three teachers of children: adults, other children, and their physical environment.”
