Churchill Center and School
St. Louis, Missouri
Churchill is a highly acclaimed school specializing in helping children with learning disabilities, grades 1-10, to achieve and return to a traditional classroom through an intensive individualized education. Christner designed this replacement school to provide a more suitable learning environment for students, improved training facilities for teachers, and expanded athletic facilities.
We designed the 44,000 sf school with the gym, library, classrooms, and offices arranged around a 2-story commons. The school incorporates smaller classrooms (from 1:8 to 1:15 teacher/student ratio as children advance) and an array of one-to-one tutoring spaces. The school’s common areas are multi-functional, daylit and user-friendly.
