You probably have a campus architecture plan and a strategic plan for your school, along with some form of curricular and co-curricular programming.
But it's hard to unify your people and resources into a cohesive organization that consistently delivers on your promises.
What you want is a holistic approach that overcomes the silos and energizes your mission to achieve maximum impact. Because Culture is the one transcendent differentiator you have that can't be replicated by your competition.
We’ll show you how you can achieve competitive advantage and sustainable excellence through this holistic approach
Metcalfe Architecture and Design has partnered with School Growth to deliver this transformative approach to school design and innovation. Because interpretive planning progressively makes the story of your school more authentic, beautiful, and real.
This distinctive method has been used for decades by museums, parks, and others to enable those in their community to personally experience the mission on a daily basis.
“When we interviewed architect firms for our new residence hall for women, we were looking for a firm that 'got us.' A firm that would listen carefully and offer us the building we wanted, not the building the firm wanted. We found everything we want, and more, in Metcalfe. They are great to work with, listen well, are incredibly responsive, both to our needs and in the day to day working relationship. I have worked with many firms over the years, and often I feel like I get a cookie-cutter result. Not with Metcalfe. They have my complete and unalloyed recommendation. The new residence hall is the first of many new buildings we imagine coming out of our master planning exercise - I strongly suspect we will be working with Metcalfe for years to come.”- Tom Wilschutz, Head of School, Solebury School
