Virtue Village, the temporary classrooms being used while the new middle school is constructed, opened on Sept. 3. To mark the occasion, Headmaster Dr. John Nagl, Chairman of the Board of Trustees Bill Yoh ’89, Building Committee Chair Maurice Glavin ’83 P’14 ’16 ’20, and Head of Middle School Dr. Jay Greytok ’83 shared remarks.
Assisted by several Middle School boys, Dr. Greytok officially opened Virtue Village with a ribbon cutting and invited those gathered to tour the two buildings: Building Courage and Building Respect. Virtue Village was named by Middle School boys during the 2018-19 school year.
“Virtue Village was built specifically for us and for our Middle School boys,” said Greytok. “It is my pleasure to officially open Virtue Village with the help of some of our Middle School boys, and to give you an opportunity to see how the space is going to meet our needs for the coming year.”
The new Middle School is set to open in fall 2020 and will house 16 state-of-the-art classrooms, a Learning Commons, custom robotics and STEM spaces, areas for boys to collaborate across grade levels, and grade-specific “neighborhoods” dedicated to the various developmental stages of middle school-aged boys.
