With curriculum changes and technological needs increasing, public schools in Fairfield were in need of new and updated facilities. Perkins Eastman’s competition-winning design for the new Roger Ludlowe Middle School, as well as renovations of two secondary education buildings, promotes connection among students district-wide. Creating exciting new middle school environments entailed the creation of high performance learning environments inside and out. The former middle school was also transformed to become the new high school, completing the district-wide improvements. Together, these projects created inspiring, beautiful, and safe learning environments serving all of the children and families of Fairfield.
