Middle School

On April 20, 2017, one year after construction crews broke ground on the new Middle School facility, the doors opened to the transformative learning environment on campus. From the laying of the concrete foundation to erecting the steel framework to building the exterior brickwork and installing the windows, students, faculty and parents have witnessed the staggering daily changes that have taken place on campus. 

The nearly 22,000 square-foot, two-story structure, which is connected to the David Teiger '47 Gallery for Studio Arts, enhances the singularity of our Middle School yet preserves the one-school feel of Newark Academy. 

The project was supported by leadership gifts to Rise & Flourish: The Campaign for Newark Academy.  

 

A Dynamic Learning Environment

Inside, high ceilings and an abundance of windows create a light, open and inviting space for students and will enhance their learning experience. The collaborative environment is fueled by lecture-style seating and whiteboards in the classrooms. Students can connect with their peers in a multi-purpose commons area and enjoy their traditional morning meeting in a larger, brighter space. Arts and music performances will reach new heights thanks to the theater seating, and new science labs will better prepare Middle School students for Upper School science classes.

Investing in Science Education

New science labs have transformed the science program for Middle School students and the investment in science, technology, engineering and math classes set NA apart. 

Prep spaces adjacent to the classrooms allow students to engage in independent research and scientific investigation during academic lessons and state-of-the-art lab supplies and equipment support scientific discoveries and hands-on learning.
