Although the Angier Elementary rebuilding project is in its early stages, city and school officials are starting to consider some of the design possibilities for the new school.
Last night, the Newton Board of Aldermen met jointly with the School Committee to hear more about those initial possibilities from the project's design firm, DiNisco Design.
Leno Filippi, a principal architect with DiNisco, presented several plans for both new construction as well as options for renovation or additions.
Newton Patch will have more on this meeting and the presentation, stay tuned!
Both city and school officials emphasized that last night's presentation consisted of preliminary designs and was meant to be the start of a discussion and feedback period.
So, now that the conversation has started, what would you like to see at a new Angier Elementary? Tell us in the comments section below.
With roughly two acres of land, a city park next door, and a busy village center nearby, there are certain restrictions to the site. Nevertheless, we want to know what you would like to see at the new school.
Earlier this month, DiNisco presented an initial educational plan for a new, 75,000-square-foot school, including the potential number of classrooms as well as the size of the gym, library, cafeteria, music and art rooms.
