Sans-Frontières
Elementary School

Saint-Jérôme, Québec

The Sans-Frontières elementary school houses a student body of 650 students, in 28 classrooms. This is the first school in Quebec to be built of glued-laminated elements, and benefits from the natural warmth and the natural human response to wood. In addition to its environmental sensitivity, wood provides inherent positive effects on students and teachers in scholastic settings.
