A New Arts Platform
will showcase creative arts as a keystone program in our curriculum. The arts are woven into our daily lives at Nashoba Brooks School; it is impossible to walk through the halls without catching a glimpse of projects, rehearsals, or performances. Through the arts, boys and girls develop confidence and understanding of themselves as individuals, genuine curiosity, empathy for other artists, and leadership skills.
At Nashoba Brooks School, we view the arts as essential components in all that we do and celebrate the power of the arts to unlock development in all academic areas. We nurture the interdisciplinary connections between art and science, literature and drama, music and history, knowing that our students will be stronger thinkers, problem-solvers, and leaders when they have the space to create, perform, and explore.
Our vigorous arts curriculum is robust—and our program has grown exponentially in both depth and breadth in recent years. Lack of space, however, creates scheduling challenges and limits the projects students can present or pursue. While Tucker is a beloved space, in its current form, it cannot hold all members of our School community for performances, nor does it offer the square footage, flexibility, or technology needed for a modern, thriving performing arts program. In short, Nashoba Brooks has outgrown its arts space due to the vitality, innovation, and sheer popularity of its programs.
The newly renovated arts platform will take shape on the site of the current art studios, music classrooms, and theatre. The new platform will include the following:
Bright, engaging, flexible studio space will support and inspire the artist in every student. Increased studio, prep, and storage space will allow students and teachers the flexibility to explore a variety of activities and media.
Two larger music classrooms with increased storage will enhance instructional practice and support the vocal and instrumental programs that have grown exponentially in recent years. Direct adjacency with other performing and visual arts will enhance collaboration and development of integrated curriculum.
Through strategic renovation, the existing theatre in Tucker will be transformed into a new theatre with increased seating. This space will have the capacity to comfortably host all-school events while also having the flexibility to ensure that the space is used consistently, effectively, and efficiently every day.
