1966, Biggs, Weir, Neal and Chastain. 4120 Old Canton Rd.

Tom Biggs here reconceived the typical school’s institutional, double-l oaded classroom corridors as ranch house-like pods for different age groups, placing at the center such shared spaces as the gymnasium and a theater. Each classroom interacts with nature through a window wall overlooking one of several communal courtyards. Marking the school as Christian, the chapel with its high hipped roof is at the front of the complex. In 1985, the upper school moved to a larger site in Madison County, leaving this campus for the lower grades.
