Construction will soon take place on the American Heritage campus at the site of the old cafeteria. A three-story multipurpose building will accommodate Lower School students for arts and technology on the first floor. Middle school students will be housed on floors two and three. There will be separate entrances to the facility with Lower School students accessing the first floor from the north entrance and Middle Schoolers entering and exiting from the south entrance.
The first floor for elementary students will include a high tech library that will delight students’ imaginations. A forest of artificial trees will extend upward to the 15’ vaulted ceiling in the center of the library and, believe it or not, the look of the trees will change with the seasons! (Yes, leaves change colors.) A story time area will be featured in a cave-like grotto with an underwater theme. The $5 million dollar complex will include three interactive technology labs equipped with Promethium smart boards. A well-equipped Lower School TV broadcast center with green screen technology will allow students to broadcast from “anywhere.” In addition, a Black Box Theatre will be added for elementary school productions. A new dedicated drama teacher will develop weekly Lower School productions. Jazz, tap, modern and ballet will be taught in a newdance studio.
Middle school students will gain four classrooms on the second floor, as well as a new computer lab. The third floor will have ten additional Middle School classrooms including two state-of- the-art science labs, a Dean’s Office and a teacher workroom.
