Sage School
Foxborough, MA

“I am so impressed by your professionalism, diplomacy and creativity. All the way through this process you have been receptive, warm, thoughtful and patient.
You also take what you know, an incredible amount, and make it accessible to those who don’t know as much.  Part of why I think you are good at this is because you listen well and you respect your audience.”

Amy Wheeler,
Former Assistant Head of School,
Sage School



DRA worked with Sage School, a school for gifted children for nearly a decade.  We originally created a master plan for a new facility with clusters or houses for the three brackets of students within the program.  These cluster groupings were then organized around a two-story common area for dining, social gatherings, and theatre.

When the purchase of an existing building arose, we provided assessment and study services to identify additions and renovations required to transform it to meet their needs. The centerpiece is a 6,000 SF gym adjacent to a stage for physical education and recreational uses along with the conversion of the existing gym to a media center.   The final plans evolved through the schools educational plan of student centered education, project based learning and a multidisciplinary approach.
