When the City of Newton approached Arrowstreet for Educational Programming services in relation to the Lincoln-Eliot / Early Childhood Program, they had intentions of studying the possibilities of these two programs sharing the same site. Upon conducting further studies, Arrowstreet proposed separating the schools to provide program space dedicated to enhancing the learning environments of each age group. Each school will incorporate carbon and monetary savings goals which will be realized by renovating the existing spaces.

The Lincoln-Eliot Elementary School serves approximately 450 students in grades K-5, including a district-wide special needs program. The project will transform the existing 1965 school by creating a new learning environment that features independent and small group learning areas with greater access to outdoor play and other activities.
