Hawken Lower School: Hurwitz Hall

Made possible by the generous support of the Hawken community and in recognition of a lead gift by Dan and Ellie Hurwitz, Hurwitz Hall opened in August 2013. In addition to providing 5,540 square feet of new space and 8,125 square feet of renovated space, the renovated Lower School facilitates Hawken’s innovative curriculum and offers additional classroom space to meet increased enrollment demand while keeping classes small.
Upgrades provided by Hurwitz Hall include:
  • Increased 2nd and 3rd grade classroom space to accommodate curriculum needs and provide classroom consistency throughout the facility 
  • The addition of a kindergarten and a 1st grade classroom
  • The creation of a community common space in the 2nd and 3rd grade area that will be similar in nature to the signature Nido
  • Renovation of “the link” and the performing arts classrooms to create a Musical Arts Center
  • The remodeling and relocation of the dedicated lower school science room
  • New homes for the Learning Enrichment Center and a flexible space for music, language and exploration
  • Restoration of the Lobby to create an entry atrium with a new vestibule
  • Exterior remodeling to create a seamless architectural exterior design, which includes the installation of a third cupola
