Peebles Elementary School, Bourne, MA
The new elementary school in the Town of Bourne, MA will serve grades 3-5 in a new two-story, 72,680 sf building. The classroom wing contains general classrooms, SPED rooms, and informal “team rooms” that encourage group learning opportunities. Administrative and guidance offices are adjacent to the main entrance lobby with convenient access to the gymnasium and cafeteria. A centrally located outdoor courtyard space provides natural light into the center of the building and separates the classroom wing from shared spaces including cafeteria, art/innovation studios, and gymnasium. The new school can be built in a single phase in front of the existing Peebles School site while the existing school is occupied with minimal disruption and very limited site phasing.
