Let’s Build Together.
Construction is almost done! We are so excited to complete our new, state-of-the-art academic building in the Summer of 2020. The final phase of our long-term capital plan, the north wing will be an environmentally friendly asset to our Peabody community.
We are so grateful to our community for supporting this vision for our students. This $3.4 million project will provide the same necessary emphasis to our learning environments that we place on education itself. Thank you to our Capital Campaign Donors who have already contributed! Still want to help? It’s not too late! Please click below to donate – thank you!
The new facility provides:
STEM MAKER LAB
A new STEM Maker Lab offers students a unique opportunity for hands-on experiential learning, outfitted with technologies including 3D printing, laser cutting, sewing machines, and arduino boards. Students will integrate cross-discipline knowledge developing skills in programming, math, science, and art to design and engineer their own creations.
PERFORMING ARTS SPACE
The performing arts program nurtures creativity and collaboration, promotes learning through body and mind, and provides the foundations for life-long music enjoyment and education. The new building houses dedicated space for our music curriculum with proper acoustics, recording technology, and soundproof practice rooms.
Our new building supports students’ relationship with the environment. The building design is LEED-compliant, and includes opportunities for solar and storm-water recycling, pollinator and vegetable gardens, a new PreKindergarten playground, and an engaging outdoor activity trail. Also, a new outdoor multi-use court and amphitheatre seating serve as the students’ main play area and connect with existing green space.
Sustaining Our Future
The addition of the north wing increases the school’s footprint by 3,000 square feet, which will accommodate a gradual enrollment increase from 210 to 225 students. As a result, Peabody will eventually offer two classes for each grade level from 2nd-8th, which ensures a full and consistent experience for all students and faculty.
I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.
