KIPP Academy Lynn

Project: New Middle and High School
Location: Lynn, MA
Architect: Arrowstreet

The KIPP Academy Lynn Charter Middle School was at full capacity with a growing student population and desire to expand into a high school. This new 68,000 sq. ft. building will meet the requirements of the area’s underserved communities with a capacity for up to 850 students in grades 5 – 12.

  • In addition to classrooms and other educational and administrative spaces, the program for the new middle and high school contains a gymnasium, cafeteria and library.
  • Work includes demolishing two existing structures on a tight, urban site, establishing all new utilities, and an extensive site work package that requires the reuse of all onsite materials.
  • Consigli managed the abatement of unsuitable soils on the challenging hilltop site and hazardous materials, limiting the school’s exposure and cost.
