Hun celebrates opening of renovated Middle School

Eighth grader Isabella Gomez cuts the ribbon as Head of Middle School Ken Weinstein assists.

The Hun School celebrated the grand opening of its renovated middle school recently with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The 19,000-square foot facility has twelve new classrooms, a robotics studio, two science labs, media and art rooms, and several large gathering spaces. Built in 1974, the middle school was redesigned to be open, colorful, and filled with natural light. Classrooms were enlarged and designed for hands-on, experiential learning.

The $5.5 million renovation was spearheaded by the School’s Board of Trustees, Headmaster Jonathan Brougham, and Middle School Head Ken Weinstein, with the goal of creating a state-of-the-art learning space for Hun’s youngest students that would also meet growing enrollment demands.

“We know that 11- to 13-year olds learn best when they are moving and doing,” Weinstein said. “Our new building provides the space to do just that. This renovation modernizes the space for contemporary education. Our math classrooms have tables that come apart depending on the configuration best suited to the project underway. They also raise and lower depending on whether or not the student prefers to sit or stand.”
