Transcenter for Youth | Milwaukee, WI

Transcenter / Escuela Verde is a charter school designed for 100 students in grades 7 through 12. The program is based on the “Edvision Project Based Learning Model” in which at-risk students work collaboratively in small groups and with an advisor. Programming is designed to attract students interested in sustainability, student-led learning and restorative justice. The mission of the school is to respond not only to academic progress, but the health of the whole child, and the community in which they live.

The project involved the adaptive reuse of a two story, 11,000 square foot aging and vacant warehouse in Milwaukee’s inner city. Space use is highly flexible to provide for maximum opportunity to respond to changing program needs.
