WHAT’S NEW Over the course of the 2019–2020 school year, Pace students, faculty, and staff are embarking on a broad study of waste, the school’s Isdell Center for Global Leadership’s (ICGL) annual global theme. Construction begins on a new lower school facility in December 2019. The three-story, 36,500-square-foot space will house science, STEAM, and arts programs, as well as administrative offices, performance and play spaces, and a resource center.
