    What Is Modernization?

    Benson's proposed modernization will completely reconfigure and update learning spaces with a focus on indoor environmental quality, sustainability and historic preservation. Full modernizations retain the historic character of the school while bringing those buildings up to code and concurrently creating a more modern learning environment.

    This is considered the most cost-effective, sustainable way to improve Benson, due to age, condition and historic significance.
