Cove School

 

Northbrook, Illinois

The Cove School in Northbrook provides highly individualized education and life strategies for 150 children with learning disabilities in grades K-12. Construction began in spring 2006 to completely renovate the school’s existing 35-year old 33,000sf facility and expand it with a 15,000sf addition—and was finished 5 months later, without missing a single day of class. The addition gives the school a new façade with a new main entrance and contains a separate entry for the high school wing, a science lab, a social work suite, a speech and language suite, and the student services wing. The renovated building contains the elementary school classrooms, an activity center (gymnasium, lunchroom, and presentation stage), a multi-media center (library, computer center, and art studio), literacy and evaluation centers, and an occupational therapy suite.
