Springfield Prep Charter School

Springfield,

2021

Springfield Preparatory Charter School is a vibrant and growing Kindergarten to 8th grade elementary school serving students by choice from across the city of Springfield, Massachusetts. This academically high performing charter program formerly operated from leased spaces in East Longmeadow until plans began to renovate a one-story office building along Roosevelt Avenue into its permanent home. With more than 44, 500 square feet of existing space to work with, JWA planned a complete reorganization of interior spaces, systems upgrade of the existing building, including new insulation at walls and roof and new finishes.To separate the school from the busy traffic of Roosevelt Avenue the new design also switches the entrance to the east side of the building where a 6,000sf gym addition and landscaping and new play areas create a more welcoming campus setting. Thoughtfully and efficiently designed at a construction cost of less than $230 per square foot, the new Springfield Prep Charter School is a welcome addition to the educational landscape of Springfield. The school is in construction currently with an intended opening date of September, 2021.
