Harold G. Fearn Elementary School / Aurora Partnership for Teaching is an innovative partnership between a public school district and local university teaching programs. The responsive design supports multiple educational structures: grade level, teaming, multi-age and looping. Suites of four classrooms are organized around small libraries, allowing students access to resource materials as needed throughout the school day. The school has been widely recognized by educators and architects, including a feature in Education Week.
