This summer has seen big changes taking place in high school science facilities at ASL. As the final piece of the New Frontiers campaign jigsaw slots into place, we are delighted to report the completion of phase one, which brings five new science labs for high school students, including two integrated spaces for Grades 9 and 10, and three designated areas for biology, chemistry and physics, not forgetting much-needed offices for the science faculty!
Phase two, due for completion in the next few weeks, will bring more revitalized space: a science research room, an area for computer science, an astronomy and ecology classroom, and a large learning commons for the exchange of ideas and research.
Director of Operations Jim Heynderickx says, "We're looking forward to seeing the new science labs in use by our students and to optimizing the spaces throughout the year."
The latest improvements to campus were just some of the 26 facilities projects carried out this summer by the facilities and tech teams. Check out the new, state-of-the-art floor in the Blue Gym, which is no longer blue, but is more than ready for our students' return to campus next week.
The New Frontiers campaign raised funds to transform our educational program at ASL and was completed in 2016. A huge thank you to all those who made these transformations possible.
