Meet the future Connecticut-based Torrington Middle School and High School. Captured in the building’s exterior design are elements reflecting this region’s rich beginnings as industrial leaders. The new building and interior spaces will foster hands-on learning, creating, and discovering that will pave the way for a prepared workforce or students of higher education. SLAM worked closely with Torrington Public Schools, the Board of Education and Building Committee during the design phase to ensure the learning environments and configuration of the new school will reflect the needs and expectations of the Torrington community.
