  • Board of Trustees Dedicates Landberg Hall joined by entire faculty, staff and student body...
    Beneath the sunshine and surrounded by setup for our 2012/2013 end of year BBQ celebration, our entire campus gathered to hear Rick Bourque, Board of Trustees Chair dedicate our new Expansion Initiative 5/6 Classrooms Building in honor of Walter Landberg. 

    "Landberg Hall is a tribute to Walter's legacy of vision, growth, and innovation. It is a physical testimony to his formational and lasting contribution to this school. And it is a symbol of the forward thinking, humanity, community spirit, educational excellence, and energy that he embodies – and with which he has led us these past thirteen years," said Bourque.

    Adam Baake, Facilities Committee Chair and Vice-Chair of the Board of Trustees talked with students about our new building and what could be expected when the building opens this fall. "The rooms are square, there are no stairs to climb in-between classes, and the views of the pond and our new Track and Soccer Fields Complex are magnificent," said Baake. Mr. Landberg thanked the Board and the entire school for the opportunity and privilege to be a part of the IACS legacy, and paid special tribute to three staff who have seen him through his entire journey--Erin Attfield Quinlan, Bob Feeney and Greg Orpen. Joining Mr. Landberg today were his parents who he paid tribute to saying "parents play an pivotal role in one's education, and this naming of Landberg Hall carries my parents names as well as my own."

    Congratulations Walter Landberg, you will be missed but forever remembered! For more information on the progress this summer of Landberg Hall and other Expansion Initiatives, please be sure to check our website: Expansion Initiative Website

    Walter speaks...

    ... and the students listen.
