Town of Tewksbury, Tewksbury, MA / John F. Ryan Elementary School
Stationed in a two-story brick foyer, flags mounted on custom-designed poles salute young students upon entering their school. Arranged around a central outdoor courtyard, the layout allows after-hours access to the gymnasium and cafeteria without sacrificing the security of classrooms and offices.
"The success of education is greatly enhanced when the environment meets the needs of the students. The John F. Ryan Elementary School, thanks to its design and architectural integrity, pulsates with the joy and wonderment of learning. How could we ask for more?"
Joan Dunleavy, School Building Committee Member
