Glen Lake School
The Goffstown School District’s new stand-alone kindergarten / preschool building houses ten large classrooms, an administrative area, and mechanical spaces. The classrooms are designed with the youngest students in mind, from shortened casework to low windows, and plenty of space for games and activities. Each classroom also has an adjacent toilet and storage room. The main office was designed to accommodate a growing school, and can easily be converted into additional classrooms as the district needs more space.
The beautiful but challenging site chosen for the school required three driveway stream crossings, and the inclusion of open-bottom box culverts. The intertwining of building with nature has provided the young students with the opportunity to learn about forest, stream, and wetland habitats first hand, and to witness how they change with the seasons.
