Superintendent Terry J. Dade and the Rochester Schools Modernization Program, a multi-phase capital initiative of the Rochester City School District in partnership with the City of Rochester, are pleased to announce the opening of Abraham Lincoln School No. 22. The Facilities Modernization Plan allowed this building to be renovated to ensure all Rochester students have the best learning spaces and comfortable facilities that they can be proud to attend.
The school replaces a void that existed in the community after School No. 6 closed in 2012. This new permanent home will operate as a staple in the community and function as a learning center, a safe place, and a hub for community engagement.
Instruction at School No. 22 will be enhanced because of the construction that has taken place since School No. 6 closed in 2012. This new building offers two new technology labs, a maker space, and a number of futuristic designs that encourage the school’s focus on teaching and learning. A masterfully constructed kitchen and an art classroom with a panoramic view create a sense of true community ownership.
An open house and a school tour will follow immediately after the ribbon cutting.
