Bellesini opened its Girls’ School in September 2015.  By September 2018 our enrollment will double, requiring expansion of our current facility.  The Building Brighter Futures Construction Project will:

  • Remove the unused Rectory adjacent to the school building in order to maximize the instructional space available on the school’s property;
  • Create a dedicated “Girls’ School space,” including:
    • Four new classrooms that will be wired for future access to the Internet and library resources;
    • Girls’ community hallway connecting girls classrooms; and
    • Girls’ Cubbies Area for storing textbooks, supplies, and personal items.
  • STEAM Center (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) that will include:
    • New Science Lab
    • Technology Center that incorporates not just computers but also space for robotics and engineering
    • Art Studio that will be used during school day and also to enhance after-school programs
    • Movement Studio that will provide space for yoga, dance, and other after-school activities
  • Alumni lounge to be used as a welcoming home base for returning Bellesini alumni;
  • Two additional office spaces for development and alumni support staff;
  • New, large signage located at the high point of the building, viewable from across the city; and
  • New fencing around the playground area and parking lot.
