263 East 203rd Street, currently under construction, will be a six-story girls preparatory school in the Bronx. The 89,978 SF Girls Prep Bronx II will serve students K-8. The project is a rezoned combination of several adjacent lots. This rezoning sets the foundation for a strong horizontal presence on 203rd Street. The façade’s cadenced grid of large windows is framed by dark ironspot brick. The main stairwell of the school is situated behind a recessed glazing façade that breaks up the length of the building and allows natural light into the interior volumes.

Girls Prep Bronx II is affiliated with the Public Prep Network, an award-winning network of charter schools providing tuition-free education for NYC communities.
