The most noticeable difference between the old building and the new building are the science classrooms. Each now has modern equipment and sufficient space. The room where the robotics team practices, for example, has double doors to be able to easily move the robots in and out.
Teachers say the old building had little if any storage space for research materials, and keeping them organized was a challenge.
“What we have now is a college-level lab where kids are capable of doing college-level work,” said Lois Fruen, head of the science department and curriculum director.
Clark said that the school’s long-term site plan calls for improvements at the lower and middle schools, but for now, school leaders want a chance to experience the new building for a while before forging ahead with other major facility upgrades.
School leaders plan to show off the entire campus to prospective families from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 12, at an open house and barbecue. The event is open to families of prospective students in preschool through grade 12. Parent and student guides will be on hand to give tours and answer questions.
