The Wilbert Snow Elementary School was redesigned to integrate both indoor and outdoor learning environments. The original school featured an eight building campus that allowed children to interact with the outdoors, but resulted in lost instructional time in bad weather. A single structure now connects the existing buildings including the gymnasium, auditorium and a reprogrammed classroom building, while maintaining a connection to the woodland. The remains of an 18th century road believed to be the location of a town meeting with George Washington passes through the site and has become a major organizing element of the building.
