Classrooms and labs are spread across seven buildings, almost all of which have been newly constructed or significantly renovated and upgraded within the last seven years. All academic buildings are fully broadband wireless, and all classrooms have either digital monitors and/or digital projectors.
There are six different dorms made up predominantly of doubles. Dorms are further broken down into units ranging in size from 11 to 20 students, with each unit having a primary dorm parent or couple. All students have access to common rooms and on-campus laundry rooms. The newest dorm, Dockery Hall, was completed in the summer of 2011 and is home to approximately 60 girls, and four different faculty apartments.

Newberry Science & Math Building
Newberry features four science labs fully refurbished and upgraded in 2012, and is home to eight classrooms. One of the first things you will note is that our classrooms are very small, which is keeping with our mission and philosophy. Every student can have a front row seat and be directly engaged in a full class discussion. Be sure to check out the large ceramic Periodic Table of Elements created by our students that hangs in the main hallway.

Posich Student Center
Refurbished and upgraded in 2011, the Posich Student Center is one of the popular places for students to hang out during free time and on weekends.
Pizza Oven and Fire Pit
One of the student favorites on weekends is to gather out by the fire pit and outdoor pizza oven, chatting, listening to music, and enjoying wood-fired pizza or some other treat roasted over the fire.
The gymnasium houses two full-size basketball/volleyball courts, locker rooms and a comprehensive fitness facility.
LaBelle Athletic Fields
The Jason Ritchie Ice Arena
The Jason Ritchie ‘05 Ice Arena serves as home to Winchendon’s very successful hockey teams as well as those from Franklin Pierce University and the local communities.

There are six tennis courts on campus including four added in 2009-2010.
The School owns and operates a nine-hole, Donald Ross-designed golf course which surrounds the north half of the campus. The course is closed to the public and allows students (and their parents!) to play on this beautiful course with views of Mount Monadnock.
Indoor Turf Field
The School enjoys a close relationship with the Clark Memorial YMCA in Winchendon. In 2010 the School worked closely with the Clark to jointly develop an indoor turf field. This provides our students with an indoor practice facility year-round. The turf field is also used for friendly contests between School teams and the local community. In addition, the Clark YMCA offers a pool as well as fitness, gymnastics, and aerobic facilities.
