Students can acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to compete and succeed in today’s digitally connected world

Manor New Tech Middle School—one of the only schools developed from the beginning with the New Tech model in mind—is a comprehensive middle school designed to support a project-based learning (PBL) pedagogy. The three-story building features an open and transparent plan organized around a central hub, providing an environment that removes barriers, incorporates collaboration, and is rich in technology. Building orientation and skylights bring daylight into all academic and lab spaces for optimal student well-being while also reducing energy use.

The school is designed around the life of a project, flowing from project launch and research, to workshops and assessments, to production and presentation. The design encourages interaction through access to resources, allowing students to choose the type of space, furniture, and tools that best suit their individual learning style and ability to complete tasks, and a one-to-one device program enables digital learning access for all students. The variety of flexible spaces and furnishings promotes instructional adaptability and learning at different scales, delivering a wide range of educational opportunities.

The result? A creative, connected space where students have all the tools they need to thrive in the digital world.
