Elementary Schools Master Plan

  • Master plan to address inequalities in enrollment and capacity of the elementary schools.


  • Educational Space Adequacy Assessment


  • Educational Program Analysis


  • Enrollment Projections


  • Facilities Condition Assessment

Habeeb & Associates Architects conducted a Master Plan for Scituate Public Schools to assess the educational program and physical condition of the district’s elementary schools. The study identified short-term and long-term capital improvements with associated costs necessary to maintain and upgrade the facilities.


Six options were presented to aid in determining whether to renovate, consolidate, and/or build a new school. The options heavily considered the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) guidelines in conjunction with Scituate’s educational programming needs.


H&A examined Scituate’s Educational Program for the following:


  • Recommended operating capacity for each school

  • Considerations for parity of programs across schools

  • Provisions for technology advancements

  • Elements to provide flexible learning environments in support of innovative and authentic learning


The Physical Conditions Assessment addressed:


  • Square foot totals and cost estimates for all upgrades and new construction

  • Opportunities to address energy efficiency

  • State, local and federal code and regulation requirements

  • Environmental and health concerns
