The Monarch School of New England provides a uniquely integrated program of education and therapy to children with disabilities and their families so that they may reach their greatest potential. D|A was selected to provide design services for a ground-up high school and vocational training facility.

The single-story building is approximately 12,000 square feet and was designed for the possibility of future expansion.  The school includes classroom and vocational wings joined by the administrative offices and support spaces.

A multi-purpose gymnasium is located in the center of the building.

Located on the edge of a large hay field, the new building's aesthetic is based on traditional farm-stead architecture and careful considerations were made to connect the building with the landscape.
