Bowdoin Breaks Ground on New Middle School for Charles River School


DOVER, MA–Bowdoin  recently broke ground for a new, 14,000 s.f. Middle School for Charles River School in Dover, MA.

The new building, designed by Flansburgh Architects, will be home to grades 6 – 8 and the middle school Science Program, and will support the school’s progressive and innovative curriculum. The building will have traditional board and batten siding and double-hung windows.

Facing the rear, into the school, however, the building takes a more contemporary form, with a two-story wood-framed glass wall revealing a large common gathering area in the center of the building.

Eight classrooms as well as breakout rooms, a faculty room, and a kitchen, will open onto this central space, which will feature an amphitheater-style seating area. The groundbreaking ceremony was held on June 13th.
