New City Elementary School
 
Addition of Media Center, Art Room and Computer Lab  

     
   
     

     
  Michael Shilale Architects, LLP (MSA) has a long history with the Clarkstown Central School district. In 1995 MSA implemented a district wide technology upgrade. That project brought fiber optic cable and the needed electrical upgrades to every school in the district. The 2.5 million dollar construction project was completed on time and under budget.

This latest effort is directed to bring to this elementary school a state of the art Media Center. Media Centers are the focus of a nationwide effort to improve literacy in our schools. Research shows a well-designed, functional and attractive Media Center along with talented and highly trained staff makes a significant difference.

An inspiring Art Room to permit more and larger project based learning will replace “Art on a Cart”. A new computer lab will free up existing classroom space and offer an improved, glare free environment.

The addition will help connect the east and west wings of the school to improve circulation and create a safe, enclosed courtyard for the kindergarten classes.

MSA designed a daylighting system for the new spaces that will reduce electrical usage and has been shown to improve academic performance.
