pre k-12 education


School buildings often share common program elements. Nagle Hartray appreciates distinctions in teaching philosophies, which become the genesis for our Pre K-12 building design.

Our working process is based on collaboration and consensus building. Our relationships begin with inclusive planning efforts and progress through fundraising to building projects. While high design quality is visible throughout our portfolio the aesthetic of each project is quite unique. The reason is our commitment to the program and goals unique to each client, not generic planning solutions or our own brand. The process, plan, and form of your campus should support your values, curriculum, and social program at every level.

Our team works with public and independent elementary and secondary schools throughout the Midwest. Nagle Hartray is the architect for some of Chicago’s most prestigious schools. Some of our best work is designing schools within an urban context.
