Saccoccio and Associates was retained to design a new campus for Meeting Street to house the nation’s first fully inclusive school program of its kind. The new “Center of Excellence” is the first LEED® certified K-12 school in Rhode Island. The design incorporates classrooms, a resource center, gymnasium, therapy spaces, offices and an indoor pool - all accessible spaces for its 230 students. The expansive “school yard” includes safe and accessible walkways and green spaces, and athletic fields that the local community is encouraged to enjoy. The focus on sustainable design reflects the school’s dedication toward providing a safe, healthy and environmentally-conscious setting for its diverse student body.
