The Philadelphia School, a private K-8 school, takes a progressive approach to learning through inquiry, projects, and community. RAS worked to develop their new Early Childhood Center with a goal to create a “country classroom in the city.” The resulting learning space includes four preschool and kindergarten classrooms with direct access to gardens and green play spaces. The LEED Certified complex features geothermal heating and cooling, stormwater Best Management Practices, and environmentally responsible use of materials and energy. Our scope of work also included a redesign of the parking areas.
