Check out Metcalfe's coolest academic and learning spaces, highlighted below, in our special Back to School Blog! Not all students are excited to return to school, but these students definitely are!
Bold colors and windows add excitement and interest to the corridors of WCS. A dramatic, double-height social space with circulation stair ties the wings of the building together and provides a great place to meet, eat a snack, and then head outside to play!
This wooden structure provides a diverse array of climbing opportunities and hiding spots for play time-- as well as seating and gathering areas for informal teaching moments outside.
Sunny, crisp social spaces with cafe tables and soft seating provide university students with many different options for socializing, completing homework, or taking a break between classes.
Boulders, water play, lush and greenery encourage nature-focused playtime at Abington Friends School.
Climbing nets, wooden platforms at various heights, an access ramp, and swinging monkey bars inspire children to run, climb, and explore the abstracted structure. Use of the structure encourages playful socialization and helps to build physical strength and endurance.
A colorful, well-stocked computer lab allows students to create a digital masterpiece and immediately screen it for their peers hanging out in the adjacent social space or for those passing by the hallway monitors.
Here are some other projects that are in the works! See photos below from Community Partnership School, Mastery Charter School, Springside Chestnut Hill Academy, and Southwest Leadership Academy.
