MA CHPS 2009 Verified Leader (Expected)

This under-construction project creates a grade 8 - 12 High School for 410 students, integrated into the educational complex of three other Maynard School buildings. The new facility ensures that the public use spaces such as the cafe, auditorium, gym, administration are at the front of the school and the shared core spaces are embedded into defined academic areas. The co-location of visual arts, technology, and media resources reinforces collaboration, allowing cross pollination of ideas through multidisciplinary learning. The School has separate academic communities for Grades 8 and 9 and integrates grades 10 - 12. Each community has a break out space for individual or group learning and a teacher planning space which overlooks the student break out space.
