Physical environment plays a critical role in childhood learning. As such, the facilities at the Suzuki School have been conceived and created to be a key component in the educational process. This means that every element of the Suzuki School encourages imagination, a sense of responsibility, independence, and confidence in each child.

Shared Facility Highlights

An array of colors, shapes, lighting, forms, textures, designs and plant and animal life were created and selected to provide a nurturing setting that stimulates a child’s imagination, sense of responsibility to others and inspire confidence. Architects and builders also delicately blended structural elements with the latest educational techniques to create a platform for one of Suzuki’s proven instructional methods – collaborative team teaching.
