Creating a collaborative learning environment

Milton Academy recently relocated the William C. Cox Library to Wigglesworth Hall in a move that will put the library at the center of student life, providing more opportunities for both independent and group study. As part of a multibuilding campus renovation, the library’s relocation makes way for a dedicated math building, the Farokhzad Math Center, in the former library building.

This staged renovation breathes greater usefulness from outdated buildings as we meet the needs of modern teaching and learning.

Library and Student Center Renovations

Math Renovation

Currently housed in the rafters of Ware Hall, Milton’s Upper School Math Department includes 19 teachers sharing 11 classrooms. Moving our Math Department from this cramped space into a building of its own, the Farokhzad Math Center, will create opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation in robotics, computing, and math curriculum. Upon completion of the Farokhzad Math Center, students will enjoy four floors of light-filled, modern space with flexibility built into every aspect of the design. With highly visible entrances facing both Ware Hall and the Kellner Performing Arts Center and Pritzker Science Center, math becomes the center of our south Quad.

Milton’s renovation plans are designed with an understanding of how students and teachers learn, live, work, and play. They make the most of our finite space, and a fiscally responsible, staged approach delivers improvements each year.
