The interesting and compelling story about the Commons has received some recent media attention. Commons Coordinator, Seth O’Bryan, wrote an article about a hypothetical day in the life of the Commons, and how students and teachers will be learning side by side. This was published in the National Association for Independent School’s magazine Independent Teacher in the Fall 2013 edition. As this magazine has a national audience, this is an exciting platform for sharing the Commons project far and wide. You can read it by following the link below.
Another great article on the systems and sustainability of the Commons was published locally by the Rochester Business Journal on November 15, 2013. Key information about the design build approach to the building, the energy systems, the student role in managing the space and more were shared in a roundtable discussion. We are proud that the hard work that has been invested in the Commons has captured the attention of local and national media. We know we have a great story to tell, and also know that this is just the beginning of an incredible journey!
