First trimester Architecture students recently had a unique learning experience.  

On Thursday, November 7th forty-one students took a field trip to tour Frank Lloyd Wright's Home and Studio.  The 7th and 8th Grade students learned about Wright and Louis Sullivan in class and discussed going to his home in Oak Park. 

Thanks to PG Administration and Board Members approving Ms. Williams' request an idea became reality.  During this trimester these students worked hard to create unique floor plans drawn to scale and also elevations reflecting their designs.  Their high level learning and creative thinking is a remarkable achievement.
