Spring Grove school officials met with two architects from Fielding Nair International in April, who said Spring Grove fosters a strong sense of community for their students.
“We’ve had terrific days here and saw some amazing things,” Randy Fielding of the Minneapolis-based company said. “The biggest strength and asset here is a sense of community and kindness. You’ve already got what we’re trying to build in other places.”
During the visit, Fielding and Huichong Tang talked to teachers, administration and students about what types of learning spaces they would like.
Examples like two classrooms that can be split by a glass wall or movable wall, which allows teachers across different subjects and grades to collaborate their two classes.
Students were particularly interested in flexible furniture for small groups, reading, studying and “cave spaces,” where they can read or study alone.
