“I believe a school should be fun and rigorous in equal measure. Too rigorous and it won’t be fun. Too fun and you’ll never learn to spell rigorous.”
“I believe I have the confidence to stretch myself and not settle for what feels okay, but to question and seek different answers.”
“I believe an education at ACS is like a best friend. It walks with you, hand in hand, as the lessons of life unfold. It teaches you the art of thinking and discovery. It empowers you to be true to yourself, and it lasts a lifetime.”
“I believe that if I reach a high level of self-knowledge and inner peace, I can help to make the world just a little bit better.”
“I believe in learning through experience. I believe in exploration. I believe in science and art. In music. Outdoor education. Indoor education. Creativity. Adventure. Family. Beauty. Messiness. Curiosity. I believe in learning, always.”
To quote our executive director and Design Team in stereo: “Absolutely not!” All good architecture is contextual. That is, it refers and responds to its context. The Middle School design reflects what the Aspen School Board wished for, and the site demanded. These factors — unique to each project — will come into play at our school as well, with our vision and setting. The Design Team is especially excited to work on a project as singular and full of character as this one and to deliver a product that reflects this community.
