Malcolm S. White Elementary School

The new Malcolm S. White Elementary School responds to the growing needs of the town of Woburn by providing expanded facilities for students from kindergarten through the fifth grade. The school was designed to relate to the town’s traditional neoclassical architecture while incorporating the latest in educational programming and technological advances. Transitional spaces throughout the school, such as the connecting corridors between classrooms, were designed to facilitate teaching; thereby allowing for a greater variety of teaching methods and student learing experiences. The entire school also incorporates a comprehensive wireless technology system, with each classroom featuring a ceiling-mounted LCD player directly linked to the instructor’s laptop. Brian Hromadka, AIA served on the design team of this project while working with Tappe Associates of Boston, MA. The project was completed in 2003.
