ABSTRACT
The article discusses open concept schools and if it could provide the educational reform needed. The architectural design of open concept schools, which began in the 1970s, is noted. Because of the schools' lack of closed doors and barriers an attitude of inclusiveness is created solely by the classroom's design. The library is the central area of the school's design. The design's enhancement of peer groups to engage in learning, and to allow teachers to work with small groups of students is considered. How open concept design promotes bridging of curriculum gaps, tutoring, unconventional assessment, and better prepared students is discussed.
