Event description

Description

The new classroom/multipurpose building was completed and officially opened in June 2017. The new addition consists of two new science classrooms, an art classroom, and a large multi-purpose room equipped with a half-court basketball court. The building, which resembles a New England barn, represents the mission of the school by exemplifying sustianability utilizing ground source heat pumps for heating and cooling, naturally ventilated spaces, and natural materials. The building meets CT High Performance Schools criteria and is targeting LEED Platinum.

Stick around after the tour. We will be having a Collaborative Planning Meeting for those that want to contribute to our efforts.
