A large gathering space

The Science & Tech commons serves as the school’s intellectual hub for formal and informal student gathering. Soft seating creates a welcoming, lounge-like atmosphere for advisory and small-group meetings. A plush velvet curtain, when closed, effectively creates a “black box” theater or enclosed teaching area. Adjacent closet space provides storage for 250 stackable chairs that can be set up for formal student and community presentations and up to 425 students can congregate on the common’s carpeted floor for regularly scheduled, all-school meetings.
