Hildreth Elementary School is a new PK-5 elementary school for the Town of Harvard in collaboration with the MSBA. The project site, adjacent to the former school, presented an opportunity to create a school for 21st century learning that meets the educational vision of this high-performing school district while also respecting the character and values of the Town. Arrowstreet completed the feasibility study evaluating the condition of the existing school as well as options for addition/renovation and new construction for the Town, followed by a comprehensive design process and construction of the new school.
The new school feature 26 core classrooms for Grades PK-5 including classrooms for specialists, gymnasium, cafeteria, and media center. The site includes two playground areas, playing fields, bus drop-off lane, clear pick-up/drop-off zone, 96 parking spaces, and houses the District Administrative Offices for Harvard Public Schools. The school incorporates flexible learning spaces that accommodate large group, small group and individual learning experiences, as well as a STEM lab.
