The New Settlement Community Campus is a unique model for school development and institutional collaboration. Through a partnership between the New York City Department of Education and the School Construction Authority, New Visions, and the Settlement Housing Fund, a new mixed-use campus has been created housing two new schools and a community center. This community campus serves over 1,000 Pre-K to 12th graders with 56 classrooms, a 350-seat auditorium, competition gymnasium, cafeteria, library/technology hub, landscaped amphitheater, and play yards. The integral community center features a 25 yard pool, dance studio, multi-functional rooms, and an outdoor teaching classroom. The green roof of the community center serves as an urban farming program for community youths. Achieved in collaboration with Edelman Sultan Knox Wood Architects, the entire complex is managed by New Settlement, allowing the gymnasium complex, play yards, and other large spaces within the school to be open for off-hour use by the local community.
