EASTCHESTER, N.Y. – With the academic year just a few weeks away, crews at the Bronxville High School are putting the finishing touches on a trio of “innovative” classrooms that will offer a unique learning experience for students.

Earlier this year, High School Principal Ann Meyer announced that the Board of Education agreed that three classrooms should be outfitted and redesigned to emphasize collaborative learning, rather than traditional, lecture-style lessons.

The plans for the innovative classrooms were born after a series of faculty visits to similar locations this year, including the I-Lab at Horace Greeley High School and Avenues and Google offices in Manhattan.

Faculty members tasked with completing the project have been meeting with a design firm, Fielding Nair, and are currently participating in ongoing professional development in an effort to maximize the potential of the reconfigured classrooms while construction crews finish their efforts.

Bolstered by grants from the Bronxville Schools Foundation, the “redesigned classrooms reflect an interest in moving away from lecture formats toward more diverse, student-directed learning experiences,” according to Superintendent David Quattrone.
