Dore + Whittier's second school project in Dedham, the Avery Elementary School, opened for the 2012-2013 school year. Complying with sustainability mandates established by the Town, and following our Middle School's Green Certification from MTC and MA DOE in 2006, Avery is a LEED-Gold facility serving 300 students in Grades 1-5. Locating the school next to the high school on a shared site reduced the land development, construction, and maintenance costs and required special attention to ensure sufficient separation, safety, and security of the younger students.
Certified LEED™ Gold.
