A message from our Head of School – Ric Anderson
For the first time in the history of our school, we are on an exciting path of a comprehensive campus renewal. We have achieved the historic goal of ensuring all children and teachers will be learning and connected together under one roof. Researchers and teachers know that – second only to relationships – physical and social environments have a direct impact on what and how our children learn at school.
Lighting, acoustics, privacy, materials, textures, ethos, aesthetics, and personalization. Qualities like these speak to the heart and soul of Matthews Hall and getting them right is a form of respect we owe our students. By prioritizing “spaces that inspire”, we honour our past, celebrate our present, and move forward together with purpose and confidence.
You will be inspired!
Matthews Hall will focus on student achievement and success by encouraging and nurturing each unique child. To accomplish this, we will provide rich learning opportunities in academics, arts, athletics and active citizenship – all with the goal of helping children to take their place in the world. We will inspire a growth mindset in our students , which will help them learn by embracing challenges and taking risks. We will accomplish this and more by modeling the kind of effort and optimism that is essential to success in school and in life.
Phase 1 on the east side of the property, is now complete. This will allow for future phases of our campus master plan to take place over the next few years and give us the room we need to enhance the highest quality student experience.
Phase 1 $ 6 million Homeroom Addition + 10 Classrooms
Phase 2 $ 4 million Early years block
Phase 3A $ 2.5 million Arts block
Phase 3B $2 million Arts block
Phase 4 $ 1.5 million Exterior
Phase 5 $ 1.5 million Dining hall block
Every gift, regardless of size, sends a powerful message to our students and school while inspiring others in their own giving. Independent schools need donations and gifts to support immediate enhancements beyond what tuition fees provide.
Inspire aims to raise $5 Million to cover the costs of Phase 2 and initiate the commencement of Phase 3.
