Ross Global Academy, 25th Street

New York, NY

Ross Global Academy, 25th street is the second New York City Charter School that Lawrence Group has completed for RGA. The school opened in October 2008 and serves 144 students in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades.

The class rooms of the existing building were bare and came with little storage. As a solution, partial height walls of cabinets were installed to provide separation in oversized rooms as well as to provide ample storage and shelf space. Graphic “curtains” allow passage through these partitions. Likewise, as part of the humanities curriculum, a program of graphic, sculptural, and artifact reproductions was coordinated throughout the school.
