Arrowstreet recently completed the Brooke High School, a 93,000 SF school for 600 students in grades 9-12 and 180 students in an Eighth Grade Academy on the top floor of the building. After working with Arrowstreet on the renovation of their K-8 building in Mattapan, Brooke hired Arrowstreet to complete the planning, programming and design for their new High School. The building includes core and specialty classrooms, gymnasium, auditorium, administrative and other support spaces. Classrooms are organized into an efficient bar along American Legion Highway, improving efficiency and reducing overall building costs. The gymnasium, auditorium and cafeteria are strategically located to create special spaces that connect the building to the neighborhood and the landscape. The south-facing courtyard forms the heart of the school, creating a focus for the cafeteria and other educational spaces.
