Chappaqua Central School District
This new facility for 650 students in grades 5-8 sits nestled into the slope on 43 wooded acres. Brick, limestone, natural wood detailing and copper roofs complement the school’s natural setting. The planning principle is based on the “House Plan,” where students are divided into smaller groupings by grade. Four classroom wings are separated by floor or common spaces including the library, auditorium and two large multipurpose rooms. Two landscaped courtyards bring light and nature into the core of the facility, as do expansive views from corridor stairwells and classrooms.
