Our Facility

The design of the Reggio Magnet School building is guided by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of education. The principal design theme within the building is the centrally located piazza, which connects the classrooms, gymnasium and cafeteria. The indoor piazza acts much like the outdoor, old world piazzas in Italy and serves as a gathering space for presentations and group functions. The focus on collaboration also extends into the design of the classrooms, which are arranged to provide a shared studio space for each grade level. Throughout the school, student work is the primary focus and the building design encourages exhibition of projects and art through the use of display cases, tack boards, and interior windows. In addition to regular classrooms, the school design includes spaces for music, art, science, and a media center.
