A major City initiative towards an improved future for the residents of Roxbury, this new neighborhood public middle/high school represents a new kind of educational building – a school without corridors which fosters inter-relatedness and transparency. The fabric of the STEM educational environment includes spaces for: small scale learning, collaboration, hybrid learning, project based explorations and community engagement. The building is broken down into three educational communities or ‘cohorts’. Each of which is sited on a different level and is centered on a satellite collaboration space, glass walled science exploratories and an office suite with dean’s office, staff preparation and reception area.
