New ABC Classrooms to welcome the Class of 2030

Over the summer we have had some new classrooms built as part of our remodeling of the Lower Primary area. These enlarged classrooms have been designed to allow us to develop appropriate learning activities for the younger members of our school community. They have included ideas from various experts in Early Learning and so far our students love them! We plan to finish the other side of the Lower Primary area next summer as we continue to remodel and develop our beautiful campus. You can see some of the new classrooms in action on this slide show.
