Welcome to MSD’s Campus Facilities Project Update page. During the 2012-13 school year MSD completed an extraordinary new Master Plan designed to address its every campus facilities needs and to support its mission driven programming. The realization of that Master Plan is well underway! Check back here frequently for the latest news about our exciting project!


Arts and Athletics Building - Expected Completion Date Spring 2014

  • APRIL 7, 2014
    Our building has windows, window glass, and doors, including the three big garage doors in the gym and the Art Barn. HVAC and sprinkler work has given way to the finish of the interior of the building, which is moving at lightening speed! Drywall will be complete this week and taping and finish work, including painting has begun. The installation of the bathroom tile is nearly finished, and the installation of lighting is just starting. Next up: exterior work including grading and sidewalks.

  • MARCH 10, 2014
    The Arts and Athletics Building is going up quickly as the team works diligently (including Saturdays and Sundays) to get the building closed in so that the details can begin on the inside. It’s hard to believe that just a few short months ago we were looking at a wide-open expanse of land with no building on it! The Exterior framing, including the window frames, is complete, and the completion of the Exterior siding and brick fascia will follow by the end of the week of March 10. The rough electrical and plumbing work is done, and the finish work on the roofing is well underway. Next up: Window glass, HVAC and sprinkler work, as well as drywall in the Art Barn!
  • FEBRUARY 18, 2014
    The concrete has been poured and the framing has begun! The past few weeks have been an exciting time for the children and staff to watch the construction site. The foundation and floors are finished and our new Arts and Athletics Center has really started to take shape. The wood has arrived and the framers began framing the Art Barn and moving toward the Gym. A 65-ton crane also arrived to install the steel structure for the Gym and begin the roof deck. Check out the great pictures of our construction site in action!

    The Arts and Athletics Center will house a new gymnasium, complete with climbing wall, fitness room, drama and music room that doubles as a real stage, locker rooms, a teaching kitchen, a commons for lunch, after school, and community space, as well as an Art Barn. Adjacent to the building will be a new Athletic Field, half court basketball court, outdoor performance space, plaza, and student-designed Tree House.


Toddler Village – Expected Completion Date Fall 2014

The new Toddler Village will include three Toddler classrooms and nap room, kitchen and work spaces for optimal collaboration of teaching teams, full length windows that allow young children an eye-level view of the outside world, larger playgrounds, and dedicated outdoor work space for each classroom.

Welcome Center-Expected Completion Date Fall 2014

One of MSD’s most historic buildings, the current Toddler/All Day Primary Building, will be renovated and repurposed for MSD’s new Welcome Center and will include a new reception area, Admissions Offices, Offices and Conference Room for the Head of School, Assistant Head of School, Business Office, Communications Office, and other Administrative Staff.

Outdoor Spaces-Expected Completion Date Fall 2014

The Master Plan also includes, new Toddler, Primary and Elementary playgrounds, beautiful new landscaping and gardens, benches along pathways designed to point to the seven continents, “Grandparent Walk” that winds throughout the MSD campus, new entry gates, and an Urban Farm.


Upper Elementary/Middle School/ Science Tower Building – Completed Fall 2013

Students are already enjoying a completely renovated Upper Elementary/ Middle School Building with all new and additional windows, new Upper Elementary classrooms and breakout rooms, a new Middle School Center of Collaboration, Middle School classrooms, new foreign language classroom and lab, Science and Innovation Tower and adjacent data lab,
