The new Upper School, which combines traditions, identity, and a sense of place, supports Sandy Spring Friends School’s mission of being an innovative presence in the international independent school network. The school’s values—simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equity, and stewardship—shaped the energy-efficient design that not only saves natural resources but promotes the health and wellness of students, teachers, staff, and the community.
The new upper school features classrooms, maker spaces, collaboration areas, teacher offices, an administration suite, and student common areas.
