Welcome to MB's New Lower School

Welcome to the reimagined and transformed Lower School! With an $8 million investment, every inch of existing space will be renovated. Additionally, we’re connecting and re-purposing an adjacent historic building, creating The Commons, a new library and community gathering space.


$8 Million Lower School Renovation And Expansion

For nearly 45 years, MB’s current Lower School building has offered a nurturing and challenging environment for children in the early years of their educational journey. Now, a top-to-bottom renovation and expansion will enhance the space with new features, including a well-designed entrance plaza with enhanced security (pictured above), larger spaces for early childhood grades (N-1), an imaginative play studio, administrative offices, and The Commons serving as a library, public gathering spot, and home for foreign language learning.

Older students (grades 2-4) will be located on a completely renovated upper level, featuring larger and re-imagined classrooms, a music studio, a STEM hub called the Wonder Lab and a flexible suite of rooms designed for individual learning support and enrichment. Fully ADA-accessible, MB’s new lower school will provide our students with a state-of-the-art facility in which to explore, learn, grow and thrive.

Lower schoolers will also continue to enjoy MB’s unique 33-acre campus with top-notch facilities like the Woodman Center, the Y-Lab and the historic Studio of the Three Oaks (home for lower school art and woodshop).
