This month we are highlighting the significant progress being made in the science lab renovations at St. Paul’s Episcopal School.
The complete renovation project consists of two phases.
To house students while the science wing is renovated, St. Paul’s renovated its old dining hall into new classrooms. While currently occupied by displaced science classes, they will eventually house a STEM suite.
Simultaneously, they also renovated and expanded their Community Service facilities from the same large space. This has already proven extraordinarily beneficial and will allow their students to give back even more to the Mobile community.
Renovation of the science labs themselves are well underway; they anticipated completion by end of calendar year 2021, with occupation shortly thereafter.
They have already begun a complete renovation of their science curriculum to take advantage of the opportunities the new upper school science labs will make possible. They’ve renovated the lower school science lab and are in the process of completely reworking their middle school science curriculum to better prepare our students to take full advantage of the science labs when they transition to upper school. Conversations are also underway about expanding their Honors and Advanced Placement science offerings as well; these would not be possible in the old science spaces.
