King David High School
New 21st Century Learning Commons
The former library at King David School was recently transformed into a bright, light-filled 21st century learning commons with social and study spaces designed to support core skill competencies such as collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills to help students thrive in today’s world.
Originally completed by AOA in 2005, King David High School is an award-winning independent Jewish school that fuses the traditions of Judaism with the provincial educational curriculum.
