Space for Students

We believe that, wherever students live, they deserve a great education, great teachers and high-quality places to learn.

These days, we’re facing challenges with space. New areas need new schools, older schools are expensive to maintain and it’s getting harder to plan programming as the city continues to grow.

We want to tackle this challenge with your help. What are your needs? How can we think differently about how we use space?

Learn more about what we're doing to create great learning spaces for our students and how to get involved.
