The Hunnewell School feasibility study will look to create an environmentally sustainable and modern learning environment, architects on the study announced at a Sept. 20 community meeting.
The elementary school’s main section was built in 1938, with several additions tacked on over the 20th century. Years later, the school is showing its age, with space shortages and poor air circulation creating a less-than-ideal learning environment, town Facilities Director Joseph McDonough said at a June 5 special Town Meeting.
At that meeting, the town voted to appropriate $1 million for the feasibility study of the school, located at 28 Cameron St. Potential options for Hunnewell include renovations, additions and/or the construction of a new building.
For the study, the town has engaged Norwood-based Compass Project Management Inc. as owner’s project manager and Cambridge-based SMMA as architects. At a Sept. 20 kickoff meeting, representatives from both firms gave a brief overview of the timeline and study process.

A recent article published by CNN talks about how to design a school in the era of mass shootings ...
(CNN) For school designers and architects, the current debate about how to make schools safer focuses too much on add-on measures.
Metal detectors? More resource officers? Armed teachers? Bulletproof backpacks?
These security steps, whether effective or not, don't address the fundamental way that a school works or how people move through it. They also must be balanced with the need to create an environment where kids feel inspired and energized to learn.
