[ARCHIVED] Amherst Elementary School Project Webpage Launches

We are excited to share that the Amherst Elementary School Project is finally underway with the recent selection of DiNisco Design to lead the design of the project. This project follows prior projects that studied options for a future elementary school. The first studied options for a project on the Wildwood site and the second studied comparable options on the Fort River site. The Town’s Elementary School Building Committee (ESBC) will now revisit current options with a new team.

The goal for the project is to create a high-performance elementary school that supports excellent child-centered education, meets the diverse educational needs of the Town’s children in daylight-filled spaces, uses the outdoors for education and play, and does so in a cost-effective “green” building that incorporates “net zero” energy principles.  In order to share project information, a new webpage has launched that will provide information and updates about the project. Please stay tuned to this site as the project moves forward in the New Year. 

If you are interested in hearing from the Design Team, please join a joint meeting of the School Committee and the Elementary School Building Committee at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 14 when the Design Team will be introduced to the School Committee.
