The Barack Obama Green Charter High School located in Plainfield, NJ, opened its doors in September, 2009. In that time, the school has been in 3 different locations including their present site, a converted office building in the Downtown area.
Today, the Student Design Team from Obama Green met with the owners of Treelawn, a 2+ acre estate in Plainfield that will be their new permanent home. The Student Design Team has worked closely with the SSP architectural group and others to qualitatively contribute their design ideas for the new teaching and learning spaces.
The students shared their ideas for the outdoor classrooms and the student commons areas with the owners, who have been married for 59 years and have lived at Treelawn since 1987. The legacy of good that will continue at Treelawn with the high school made a deep impression on both the students and the owners.
