 As construction for the new Schilling math and science wing is approaching, students and teachers can watch as ground is broken for the the portable classrooms they will soon call home.

There will be one building located south of the music wing, in between the baseball diamond and the music wing, with 12 classrooms and a central corridor. Each classroom will be equipped with heating and cooling, white boards, projectors, and all the necessary material found in most classrooms at SPA already.

“There is no reason to be concerned – they will look, feel, and operate like any other classroom (somewhat longer than some of our current rooms), and they are close enough that it won’t be much different than walking to a music class,” Upper School principal Chris Hughes said.

All the classes which are currently using the spaces in the east wing and third floor will be moved to the portable classroom building. This means that all the History and Language classes, with the exception of the two language classes taught by Sr. Castellanos and Mdme. Kerman who teach their classes in a different part of the existing building.

They will look, feel, and operate like any other classroom ”

Move in will commence after Spring Break, but an official timeline has yet to be finalized.

“We don’t know all the details of the timetable yet; we anticipate that we will likely be using them for the better part of two years, but it will depend on the timing of the renovations to the Upper School,” Hughes said.
