Novo Community School

Situated on an urban infill site, the 72' x 40' 2,880-square-foot classroom building and 60' x 40' 2,400-square-foot administration building contain everything conducive to learning for the high-risk students they serve.

The classroom building consists of three 960-square-foot classrooms enhanced with teaching walls with sliding marker boards, six feet of upper and lower cabinets with a 24-inch-wide teacher's wardrobe and VCT flooring at the entry and stainless steel sink location. An interior door on each center wall allows students to interact with their peers and change classes, as in a comprehensive school. Awning windows measuring 6'6" x 6'6" allow for fresh air and provide abundant natural lighting.

The administration building includes a similar 960-square-foot classroom; four resource rooms; an open reception area with VCT flooring at the entry; multi-fixture men’s and women’s restrooms; a janitor room with a mop, sink, water heater and covered sheet vinyl flooring; and an IDF room with VCT flooring.

A 7-foot rough-sawn plywood exterior with vertical battens and horizontal trim below 3 feet of three-coat site-applied stucco showcase the buildings within the neighborhood surroundings, and custom storefront doors and awning windows make the buildings inviting to students and staff. The aesthetics and thoughtfully designed interior spaces embody the mission of the Novo Community School and reflect the pride of the students who attend the facility.
