Renovation Results

Throughout summer 2018 and 2019, we transformed the St. Paul's middle and lower schools. Today, you can find students exploring coding in the makerspace, using vernier probes in the expanded science lab, collaborating in small hubs, and much more. The renovated spaces are exceeding expectations as our teachers use them to expand our students' abilities to ask good questions, test hypotheses, and find solutions to engaging problems.

What Teachers Are Saying

"I love the resources the spaces offer us. I've really enjoyed the open maker space hours where students work on specific design challenges or their own passion projects. Now, we can explore 3-D printing, circuitry, engineering, coding, and more. It brings increased voice and choice for the student, which is very powerful for their learning." Maeve O'Connor, sixth grade science teacher and innovation teacher

"We are thoroughly enjoying our new learning spaces! They are beautiful, bright, and student-friendly. On any given day, I can walk through the first or second floor commons and see students seated comfortably on a couch or stool reading independently or working diligently with peers or in small groups with a teacher. This new environment provides spaces for students to collaborate, think critically, practice communication skills, and grow as learners." Lisa Jones, 3rd - 8th Grade Division Head
