Facility designed to inspire young minds for generations to come

Fuller Middle School

The City of Framingham, Framingham, MA

Fuller Middle School provides students the flexible, expansive space to build upon the preparatory STEAM education pedagogies Framingham students experience in elementary school. A three-story Learning Commons, paired classroom suites with shared teacher planning offices to promote team teaching, and flexible indoor and outdoor gathering areas bring together the entire academic community, showcasing project-based learning and inspiring creativity and collaboration. Forwarding the broader community’s goal of creating a new civic focus for South Framingham, the building is set back beyond a sloped outdoor amphitheater with a performance shell, serving as a gathering lawn for students and venue for town-wide events and performances.
