Construction on the building, located adjacent to the new GW residence hall on F Street, began this fall and is on schedule to be completed by summer 2009. The School Without Walls is a D.C. Public Schools high school affiliated with GW, allowing students to take college-level classes. Since fall 2007, the school has been relocated to the Logan School near Union Station.
In addition to a complete gutting of the interior of the building, the project also includes a three-floor addition on the east wing, which will have floors completely dedicated to the music and art departments and a terrace for outside activities. The basement of the old building will be almost completely devoted to the science department, housing labs for biology, chemistry and physics.
As the move-in date slowly approaches, faculty members are looking forward to new soundproof classrooms, interactive touch-screen whiteboards, new desks and working heat and air, among other improvements.
