Education Rooted in Culture and Context


U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Education

Project Location

Multiple Locations, U.S. Virgin Islands

The U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Education selected us to design an educational facilities master plan and set a new direction for education in the USVI. The master plan encompasses more than 2.7 million SF of educational space in 45 facilities across St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas. The existing portfolio of aging schools is rapidly deteriorating in the tropical environment and many buildings have been damaged by Category 5 hurricanes over the years, including Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria in 2017.

The four primary components of the master plan address spatial agility, school safety, sustainability, and community partnership. These components are informed by a comprehensive set of guiding principles for learning environments in the UVI established by more than 45 stakeholders including government officials, educational leaders, teachers, students, parents, community, and industry partners.
