SCHRADERGROUP Hosts Planning Workshop for Rose Tree Media School District’s New Elementary School
At SCHRADERGROUP, we believe academic design truly is the design for the future, as it provides the environment in which today’s students develop into tomorrow’s thinkers and leaders. In order to keep that goal in focus, we strive to develop designs for facilities created by the community, for the community.
Our community-based workshop process for planning and design inspires innovative design solutions that nest serve our client’s needs. Collaboration is key to supporting our client’s dreams and our team’s capabilities assist with getting to the end result. Educational facility design that is initiated by the client results in a project that will serve the community and is grounded in the district’s culture and educational philosophy. As 2021 continues, more projects are becoming realties for SG and our clients. One of these exciting projects is a new elementary school for Rose Tree Media School District (RTMSD) in Media, PA.
SG recently partnered with RTMSD and ICS to host a planning workshop for faculty and administration of RTMSD to learn what priorities the District has for the new facility. SCHRADERGROUP team members led the process geared towards discovering different options for the new school.
The workshop began with a presentation about next generation learning and gave attendees virtual tours of state-of-the-art facilities in the country that exemplify these ideas. Next, the group broke into smaller teams and held individual visioning and building workshops with feedback loops in order to come up with and vote on the best options for the District.
The SG team came away from this workshop event with multiple site concepts and building plans that were reported back to the larger group. From here, designs will continue with refinement workshops until a final design has been reached.
SG is proud to work with Rose Tree Media School District and is looking forward to completing a state-of-the-art facility for the residents of the district’s municipalities.

Upper Merion Area School District Welcomes Two New Elementary Schools with Excitement to Their Portfolio of Excellent Learning Environments
SCHRADERGROUP (SG) attends Upper Merion Area School District (UMASD)’s ribbon cutting for new elementary schools, Caley and Gulph.
UMASD welcomed two new elementary schools, Caley Elementary and Gulph Elementary, to their portfolio of excellent learning environments with excitement at their ribbon cutting last week.
SG is proud to be the architect for these two exciting, new elementary schools. The new schools will replace the existing Caley Elementary School and Gulph School facilities, which were originally constructed in the 1960’s and no longer accommodated the District’s enrollment or educational program.
Caley and Gulph were received by the School District and public with enthusiasm. Superintendent of Schools, Dr. John Toleno, and the District Board Member-President, Alice Hope praised the design team for “capturing what we needed for the district.” The buildings represent the culmination of a journey that started with design workshops that includes students, faculty and public conceptualizing their ultimate learning environment and culmination in these wonderful spaces for future generations to absorb knowledge.
SG is grateful for the opportunity to design learning environments with such vision. The team looks forward to continuing to support the District in its future visions.
