“SO MUCH OF THE LANGUAGE OF EDUCATION IS BASED AROUND
THE LANGUAGE OF BUILDINGS AND SPACE. OUR COMMUNITY OF LEARNERS IS CALLED A ‘SCHOOL’. STUDENTS ARE ARRANGED INTO ‘HOUSES’. THEY ARE ENCOURAGED TO MOVE ALONG ‘PATHWAYS’, THROUGH DIFFERENT ‘GATEWAYS’ AND LOOK THROUGH ‘WINDOWS’ OF OPPORTUNITY. ASTUDIO CAPTURED THIS LANGUAGE FROM THE OUTSET AND WORKED WITH US TO CREATE OUR NEW SCHOOL.

EACH OPEN CLASSROOM AND UNBROKEN SPACE ENCOURAGES US TO REVISIT OUR EXPECTATIONS AND LEARN IN NEW WAYS. EACH HIGH CEILING CAPTURES THE CHILDREN’S SPIRIT AND POTENTIAL, AND THE SKY FACING WINDOWS URGE EACH ONE OF THEM
TO FLY.”
