Overview: A new 12-classroom urban school to ease overcrowding and accommodate 300 kindergarten pupils.

Program: A visionary, prototypical program developed by Boston’s Blue Ribbon Commission, the City of Boston’s Public Schools Department, Public Facilities Department, and Wheelock College. The object was to create a 34,400-square-foot public school offering challenging opportunities to students entering the 21st century, and to create a safe, friendly, and welcoming environment that provides pupils with an advantage in making the transition from home to school. The child-oriented, family-focused, technology-rich school provides state-of-the-art renewable telecommunications and computer technology in every classroom and across classrooms within the entire City of Boston school system.

Existing Building/Site : Situated in a dense urban residential and commercial environment. Former site of the Tileston School.
