The Brookline High School Expansion Project creates a unified civic campus around historic Cypress Field. Our first phase of this project was the STEM Wing addition to the historic high school. The project fits into a cherished campus setting, with new welcoming front porches and a unified architectural language, while transforming the streetscape to facilitate a safer and more welcoming student experience when traveling between buildings. The project introduces an new front door to the existing school building. It provides 16 state-of-the-art STEM biology and chemistry labs and flexible use breakout spaces to enable faculty to engage students deeply by increasing flexibility in instruction, exploring connections between subjects and fostering faculty collaboration.

ENGAGING THE COMMUNITY

This project is the result of a highly inclusive design process with over 140 meetings with elected officials and boards, neighbors and residents, educators, and students. The STEM Wing and the Freshman campus at 22 Tappan will increase the capacity of the high school by 700 students, reflecting the city's vision of accommodating its growing student population in the coming years.
