THE VISION FOR PHASE II
$1.2 Million Goal
Phase II of the Designing for the Difference Capital Campaign presents a timely opportunity to “finish what we started”!
Central to our philosophy is an understanding of interdependence; we depend on each other for our growth as learners. The spaces we occupy should foster this idea. Students need spaces that enhance their academic work around research and media literacy, but they also need places to informally gather, socialize, work collaboratively on a project, have a snack, and share time together.
The recent creation of the Dennis Naas Learning Commons in the center of our building is the intersection of academic common space and social common space. It encourages the interdependent relationships we have fostered through the Lower School and hold dearly in the Middle and Upper School.
Phase II provides an extraordinary opportunity to blend form and function with intentional spaces for a much-anticipated full functioning kitchen on the Café Floor…a much-needed Faculty Lounge for our remarkable and deserving staff…a designated office for the Head of School…renovated main office areas and restroom upgrades…and SHH, the quietest study area on the Birmingham Campus!
