01 Project Overview
The new James Blair Middle School is designed to support all of the different ways that students learn.

The new facility embraces the concept of flexibility in an integrated environment by allowing teachers to switch methodology and recombine students for short periods of time based on their mastery of stated standards. This approach is creating new opportunities for students, and maximizing personalized learning at the school. As part of James Blair’s future-ready design, the school will be able to easily adapt to new technologies and curriculum changes in the future.
