Living Stones: What’s New?
It's hard to believe that just 9 short months ago, the space adjacent to our existing high school building was a parking lot. Today, an 11,000 square foot, state-of-the-art building replaces the 12 parking spaces!
Eight New Classrooms
New Classroom space allows us to accommodate more students, and to be more effective in specializing the spaces for a more hands on, immersion-based classroom.
New Digital/Fine Arts Classroom
Art has been taught in a variety of spaces in our current high school, but hasn’t yet had its own space. The new art studio is a place where all students can create and reflect their amazing creator.
New Music Room
Like the visual arts, music is something that has filled whatever space was available. Music now has its own space, sound proofed and all.
Increased Security w/ New Holding Area for Visitors
Safety is one of our greatest concerns. This expansion allows us to greatly increase our ability to keep the school a refuge for all of our students and families including ballistic holding areas for guests, high-definition security cameras and a state-of-the-art security system.
New Administrative Offices
Collaborative space means our administrators are able to effectively work in proximity to each other and in close proximity to the students we serve.
Collaborative Tutoring & Multipurpose Space
For the first time in the history of the school our volunteers will have space primarily designed for their use. This space provides individualized places for one-on-one tutoring, as well as flexible spaces for professional learning communities.
A Mural to Enrich Learning Spaces
Art can change a space from ordinary to extraordinary! The mural by celebrated artist Sean Gilder with Red Path Creative frames the learning space while reminding students of the RA mission.
New Main Office with Waiting Area
The creation of a new main office with a waiting area provides a central entry point for guests to the school as well as a far more functional space for parents and students.
