Roxbury Latin School, West Roxbury, MA

Although it is best known for its Classical curriculum, Roxbury Latin was the first secondary school in the United States to offer laboratory science courses. In keeping with this proud tradition, the Bauer Science Center provides state-of-the-art facilities for science education. The main body of the building comprises four teaching laboratories, each with a faculty office and a preparation room attached. The lecture and demonstration room, housed in a one-story wing, is provided with tiered seating and complete audio-visual facilities. (Keefe Associates 1996)
