After our people, our facilities are one of Viewpoint’s important assets in providing our students, faculty, and staff with the optimal environment for learning, teaching and working. Over the last two decades, Viewpoint has added 163,200 square feet of space. The top priority has been providing our students and teachers with the classrooms, laboratories, play areas, and athletic facilities that support innovative, 21st century learning and student social and emotional growth. Our current strategy is to seek smaller, lower-cost ways of maximizing and making best use of available spaces, accomodating shifts in our evolving landscape.
As Viewpoint has grown, some functions have ended up in spaces that are no longer conducive to helping our faculty and staff get their jobs done in an effective and efficient manner. This spring, the Buildings and Grounds Committee identified multiple opportunities to relocate, re-purpose, and renovate spaces that address challenges in creating a positive admissions experience, welcoming guests to the campus, and scheduling classrooms.
Below are a few of the reasons that the second floor of Academic Hall will be updated this summer and ready for the first day of school in August.
