East Bridgewater Jr./Sr. High School

East Bridgewater, MA

The New East Bridgewater Jr./Sr. High School successfully integrates two distinct learning communities that share common core facilities and faculty; one community servicing grades 7-9, and another servicing grades 10-12. Ai3 designed the East Bridgewater Jr./Sr. High School for grades 7-12, which allowed the town to solve multiple programmatic needs with a single new facility.  The completed facility is an innovative 21st Century learning environment where students witness the implementation of advanced sustainable strategies, while simultaneously learning of the science and engineering that make them possible. The project includes academic classrooms with a built-in facilitator station that allows the teacher to control all integrated technologies from a single-touch panel per classroom.  These technologies include interactive white boards, LCD projectors, document scanners, CPUs, and video devices.  Sound Reinforcement Systems amplify and balance the spoken voice within the room to enhance listening comprehension. The project includes a Performance & Distance Learning Theater that delivers “real time” streaming of voice, video, and data within an acoustically-conscious space.  Collaborative teacher planning lives in the Cyber Cafe, an area that combines departmental reference materials, staff work areas, laptop docking stations, conference rooms, storage, and kitchenettes into a multipurpose space that encourages collaborative planning and social interaction. Departmental presentation and interactive instruction kiosks are located throughout the building so that students circulating through these “zones” observe the work of various departments and programs. The school includes an entirely wireless campus environment, so students can use laptops from the outdoor courtyard or connect to the large-scale video display wall for in-house TV productions.  Many amenities are available for the community as well, like the indoor walking track, artificial turf field, new stadium with track, and full performance auditorium.
