This school, located in the southern outskirts of Waterbury, houses 550 students between the ages of four and fourteen. The facility comprises three distinct wings connected by a transparent central lobby. The wide range of facade materials includes masonry walls, zinc tiles and, most notably, Swisspearl® panels in four different shades used for the dramatically slanted and curved classroom wing.
