Ransom Everglades is installing 15,000 square feet of permeable pavers to create an attractive new drop-off loop at the Upper School entrance. The loop, which runs between the Lewis Family Auditorium and Ransom Cottage, has been under construction since late December and will be open for use in the coming weeks. It includes charcoal, gray and off-white pavers in a herringbone layout.
Once the loop is complete and the landscaping in the area is finished, workers will move to the site of the new STEM Center and begin laying the foundation for that building.
Traffic has been re-routed during the loop construction. Vehicles enter as usual at the main entry gate, but they are routed behind the Visual Arts Building and directed through the La Brisa property to the exit gate on that land.
Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The mission of Ransom Everglades School is to provide an educational environment in which the pursuit of honor, academic excellence and intellectual growth is complemented by concern for the physical, cultural and character development of each student. The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
