New Visions Elementary School


Gruzen Samton • IBI Group designed multiple additions and renovations for the Freeport Public Schools, including a major classroom and science laboratory addition at the district`s high school and the addition of a new media center and classrooms at Atkinson Elementary School. This contract for comprehensive support services also involved our design of a new 500-student magnet elementary school, the New Visions Elementary School of Exploration and Discovery. Our designs support the curriculum, which is organized around thematic studies. Innovative design elements provide students with the means to showcase their work in a museum like setting. The building is organized around a central, main exhibition space. Corridors include display galleries and link pairs of classrooms. We incorporated similar components into designs for small classroom additions planned for the Bayview and Archer Street Elementary Schools.
