It Takes a Village

Community involvement in the visioning and programming phase leads to a design solution that meets Leicester’s educational goals and target budget

Leicester Middle School

Town of Leciester
Leicester, Massachusetts

Finegold Alexander has just completed the MSBA Feasibility Study and Schematic Design phases of the Leicester Middle School project. After a rigorous existing building and site conditions assessment in parallel with a series of educational visioning workshops with the District, it was determined that a new Pre-K-8 school would be the most cost-effective approach for the Town.

The design is organized around the concept of “two schools under one roof”—lower school for grades Pre-K through 4 and upper school for grades 5 through 8—and features a central gathering point or “School Commons.” The shared spaces, including the Gymnasium, Cafetorium and Media Center, surround the School Commons to be used by both the school and the community.
