New Outdoor Space: 413 Lexington

New Land, New Opportunities!

We recently finalized the purchase of the land behind the school, 413 Lexington Rd

As you know we have already started working on cleaning up the land and have created some garden space, however this will be a process before it will be ready for students.

Coming soon we will have many volunteer opportunities to make this space exactly what we need
