Classrooms are not neutral. Indeed, each room “says” something to students as they enter, and recent studies reveal that classroom space can have a tremendous impact on student learning. As ESchoolNews reports, “more and more research points to the increased student achievement and engagement resulting from redesigning learning spaces to be more flexible and collaborative.” 

Inspired by this research, as well as by input from students and staff at HHS, we submitted a $17K grant application to the Hopkinton Education Foundation to create an “inspiring student learning space” that will serve as an incubator for more innovative approaches to classroom design for HHS and the District. We are thrilled to announce that the Hopkin Education Foundation (HEF) funded our proposal and awarded us the Stephen Gray Innovation Grant for 2015.
