New Settlement Community Campus
Bronx, New York
The New Settlement Community Campus offers a unique model for school development. It includes two schools: a primary school and an intermediate/high school, plus a community center. Combined, the schools serve 1,163 students and the campus provides programming for thousands of neighborhood residents.
Highlights of the program include a 75-foot swimming pool, an auditorium, a competition gymnasium, a library/technology hub, and an outdoor amphitheater and play yards. The two-story mass running along Jerome Avenue houses the public spaces, while the classroom portion of the building is rotated in order to set itself apart as a distinct architectural element. The library dramatically cantilevers over the main school entrances, highlighting the role of literacy and technology in the community.
New Settlement Community Campus is a partnership between Settlement Housing Fund, the New York City Department of Education, and the School Construction Authority.
