"The daylit classrooms have increased the well being of the students and teachers and are at least partly responsible for our record high attendance rates. It's a model school the students are proud to show off."
Tom Benton, Durant Road Middle School, NC, School Principal

"Everything that has occurred here [Durant Road Middle School] really provides the opportunity for those young students to learn more and save energy. It's going to be another tool for education. The architectural design shows how thoughtful innovations in a daylit facility can enhance a child's education."
Hazel O'leary, Former Secretary, US Department of Energy

"The students are getting a lot of vitamin D. They do well in the classroom and we do not have a lot of sickness. The architecture brings more energy in the classroom."
