The Charles River School in Dover will start construction on a new middle school building this summer.
The independent preK-8 school has raised $7.5 million in six months to build the new space and also grow its endowment. A key feature of the new building will be additional space to support mathematics and physical sciences.
“At CRS, we take great pride in our innovative curriculum, and our current middle school infrastructure no longer meets our programmatic needs,” said Head of School Gretchen Larkin. “The field of education has evolved at an incredible pace over the last decade; our faculty and students need learning spaces conducive to the project-based, collaborative learning that firmly places CRS at the vanguard of education.”
