Slate School is an independent elementary school in North Haven, CT dedicated to fostering a life-long love of learning through curiosity and discovery.  Situated on a 25 acre parcel featuring forest, open meadow lands and organic gardens, the Slate School will celebrate nature as a means to observe and play.

The School’s small, single story buildings will minimize site disturbance by being placed over the same area as a large 1980’s-era single family home and its surrounding outbuildings. An administrative building and three active classroom buildings will enclose a formal courtyard, hosting outdoor learning, study and organized play activities. Beyond the courtyard, a series of organic flower gardens, rain gardens, and meadows will create opportunities for imaginative learning and spontaneous play.

All building materials are vetted for durability and non-toxicity to the highest standards. High-efficiency building envelopes and adaptive mechanical systems will keep building operations & maintenance costs to a minimum while enhancing occupant comfort and health. Building design strategies such as solar orientation, natural ventilation, daylighting & circadian lighting will benefit and enhance the learning potential for the students.
