The Pressing Needs:
As enrollment and retention continues to increase, there is an immediate need for more classroom space to accommodate more than 415 students. Renovating the deteriorating Constance Street building will allow Ecole Bilingue to expand our campus to welcome new students while continuing to maintain small class sizes.
The renovation of the Constance Street building will prioritize four middle school classrooms as well as a dedicated and sound-proofed music room and state-of-the-art STEM lab. This building will also provide a student lounge with lockers and a dedicated student community space. Administrative offices will be located on the second floor.
With the renovations of the Constance Street building taking place during the 25th academic school year, this upgrade will meet the needs of Ecole Bilingue’s students now and for the next 25 years and beyond. The Constance Street Building Campaign is an investment in the school’s ability to create and promote a challenging educational environment that inspires students to be life-long learners.
An ambitious fundraising goal $1,000,000 will be achieved if all members of local and international community to add this critical fifth building to Ecole Bilingue’s campus. A gift of any size is welcome. Ecole Bilingue’s Administration and Board of Trustees is aiming for 75% participation from current families and their networks. We encourage families to include their networks, employers, families, and friend groups to help the school achieve this goal.
