Discover the vision of the new Beginning and Lower School
OES Campus in the 1960s
Imagining a new Beginning and Lower School Access to the outdoors:
The entire OES community has contributed to shaping the vision for our new Beginning and Lower School. Weâ€™re still in the early stages of developing plans, but we know that the new building will feature:
To make even better use of our campus as an extended experiential classroom for everything from science to art to play.
Large flexible classrooms:
Gathering and performance space:
To empower teachers to adapt the space to the lesson, not vice versa.
Dedicated spaces for groups: To allow for and encourage collaboration and special projects.
State-of-the-art science labs and art studios: To stimulate discovery, creativity, exploration, and inspiration.
To provide each grade level with an area for all three class sections to work, learn, share, and explore music, theater, and presentations together. These are just a few of the ways our new Beginning and Lower School will open up wonderful possibilities for our teachers, our students, and our community.
During 2012, an OES task force worked with educational design consultants to create a campus master plan to support wide-open learning. With help from trustees, parents, students, alumni, faculty, and staff, the task force investigated: How do we use our space today? What do we want our curriculum to look like in 5 years, or 20 years? How do our current facilities serve is? How can we make the best use of our campus space and resources? How can we advance our commitment to environmental sustainability? The result? A complete vision for open spaces that open minds, starting with a new Beginning and Lower School.
