Innovate.

Next Steps: Moving into Student Common Areas

Given how much the student and teacher experience has been revolutionized within our innovated classrooms, the Board of Trustees has committed to move into 'innovating' community spaces for our students and faculty.

Phase 2 of the Innovate initiative will see the creation of a bright, inviting, and highly functional place for the community to gather for conversation, meetings, work, or retreats throughout the day. The new cafeteria, The Connelly Commons, will be designed to seamlessly flow in and out of our Hanley Courtyard, extending the room and bringing the outdoors, inside.

Additionally, we are looking to reallocate areas to enhance and improve our students' health and wellness activities. Phase 3 will move our Fitness Center to directly underneath the gymnasium to offer dedicated training and team rooms. Senior Lounge will also be reconfigured and refurbished, and bringing all of these areas together, a student lounge, study rooms, and reconfigured academic lockers will create opportunities for students of all grades to come together, creating connections between classes and during free periods.

Phase 3

Phase 3
Optimizing the importance of team space in The Tigers’ Den

Reallocating areas to enhance and improve our students’ health and wellness activities and provide a more seamless flow for students. Beginning with relocating and reconfiguring our Fitness Room to offer more strength and conditioning stations in a space where students can easily access showers and dedicated training and team rooms, where our athletic teams can gather, pre- and post- games. Additionally, the senior lounge will be reconfigured and refurbished, continuing the legacy by recognizing the importance of a cherished tradition for the senior class to strengthen their bonds before heading off to college. Bringing all of these areas together, a student lounge open for all grades will create more opportunities for students to come together, creating connections between classes and during free periods.
