A meaningful relationship between a school and its community enhances the core curriculum and the future of its local economy. This K-12 conceptual school features supporting learning spaces located around a center atrium allowing community integration. Each space within this school is designed to capture creativity, experimentation and student exposure to real-life lessons and professional mentorships.
Studies indicate that playing, learning and relaxing in a natural setting can defuse stress and anxiety. Kids who had grown up around the lowest levels of vegetation had a 30% higher risk of neurotic, stress related, or psychosomatic disorders. Each space within this school incorporates access to natural light, views of the outdoors, and access to biophilic elements that will not only reduce student stress but build a stronger framework for Social Emotional Learning (SEL) strategies.
