PCSD completed the original Beach St project in 2008, and it held Animo Pat Brown high school until 2020. In 2020, Animo Florence Firestone Middle School will move into “Beach I” and Animo Pat Brown will move to “Beach II.”
This project was an adaptive reuse of a former furniture manufacturing facility. The building is 40,099 square feet sitting on 87,497 square feet. An existing 7,100 square foot butler building on the site was demolished to create open/green space. It will serve 420 students in grades 6-8.
