Holy Innocents' cuts ribbon on new Math, Science & Commons Building

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School’s state-of-the-art Math, Science and Commons Building was formally opened on Aug. 21.

Friday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony was more than the dedication of a new high-tech STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) building, however, said Board of Trustees Chair Bruce Ford. “I see much more than brick, stone and mortar. The development of this new building is a beginning that serves to ask, ‘What’s next, what now, and what else?’”

The Rev. Michael Sullivan, rector of Holy Innocents’ Episcopal Church, said the new building was also the newest symbol of Holy Innocents’ “deep and abiding responsibility to care for children.”

The three-story, 64,000-square-foot building has a cutting- edge media suite with broadcast studio, robotics lab, state-of-the-art science labs, and a dining hall to seat 500, Head of School Paul Barton cited the building’s abundance of natural light, space, and high-tech facilities for hands-on learning. “What a special day this is for our whole community—a day when we remember our past as well as celebrate our present, and honor our future.”

Some 1,375 students are enrolled in the school this year—students ages 3 through 12th grade—including a record-setting 128 seniors.
