EB’s new expanded, greener outdoor spaces are the result of The Campus Campaign – Our Moment, our effort to secure EB’s future and offer our students “space to grow” in a welcoming outdoor learning environment.
Facilities Master Plan
The new outdoor space is simply the most visible result of the Board’s Facilities Master Plan. In 2008, EB leased all of its properties. In 2009, we purchased our Lower School campus, and in 2010 we took advantage of favorable market conditions to purchase the Middle School campus. At the same time, the Facilities Master Plan sought to address the chronic overcrowding and lack of green spaces on our playgrounds, and The Campus Campaign – Our Moment was launched in 2008 to expand and transform EB’s outdoor spaces.
Thanks to the generosity of more than 360 donors—including EB trustees, employees, current parents, alumni families, grandparents, friends, corporations and foundations—we raised $2,848,000! In June 2014 we were able to break ground, and our outdoor learning environment was completed in Fall 2014.
