Renovations Begin at Northwood on Main

For more than three years, Northwood on Main has been somewhat of a mystery to Northwood students. The empty building in the center of town, purchased by Northwood in late 2015 and vacant since long before that, finally has some activity in it. Renovations began earlier this spring on the old building formerly known as With Pipe and Book.

According to Assistant Head of School Mr. Tom Broderick, “Northwood School on Main is an extension of the school’s campus and educational philosophy to engage students in the active pursuit of knowledge through exploration and inquiry. Our extraordinary location rooted in the Adirondacks combined with the school’s highly talented faculty and diverse academic programming enhances our goal to provide experiences that create confident, globally-minded students ready to innovate and adapt to our ever-changing world.”

Broderick added, “Programs like Entrepreneurial Studies, Innovation + Design, Robotics, Aviation Science, and Olympic Physics will expand with the addition of this new facility allowing Northwood School to offer an interdisciplinary approach to education that emphasizes active learning and creating, challenging students to become resilient, independent thinkers.”

The facilities are set to open during the first trimester of the 2019-20 school year. Local newspapers have reported on the story, including The Lake Placid News and Adirondack Daily Enterprise.
