Mauro-Sheridan Science, Technology & Communications Magnet School

A dramatic gateway and stair tower reflect the Mauro-Sheridan School’s unique educational program

The Dr. Susan S. Sheridan School was built in 1922 in the Neo-Gothic style.  Named for a former New Haven teacher, the original structure was 44,000 sf, with 46,650 sf added in the 1960s.  By the late 1990s, the City of New Haven determined the addition was in a state of disrepair and required demolition, while the original historic structure required complete renovation.

Kenneth Boroson Architects designed a “renovation as new” with a 57,000-sf addition to create a new 101,000-sf magnet school with a PreK-8 curriculum focused on science, communications and technology.

Now accommodating approximately 575 students, the facility includes new classrooms for science, music and art - laboratories for video production, computer graphics, and applied technology as well as a standard science lab.  Also included were two guidance suites, a nursing clinic, general administrative offices, and various spaces for storage.  

New addition and “renovation to new” designed to LEED Silver equivalency, received Energy Star award

PreK-8th grade school for 540 students includes 24 classrooms, gymnasium, cafeteria with stage, music room, art room and science and computer laboratories, administrative spaces and support service areas
