How can Thriving in Vertical Schools shed light on student learning and wellbeing for  all schools?

Thriving in Vertical Schools – Research Forum

Urban population growth and limited urban land availability are driving Australian educational institutions to invest substantial funds in a novel architectural approach: vertical schools situated on small land parcels within high-rise buildings. These vertical schools offer an opportunity for innovative design. A comprehensive evaluation involving over 300 students across three schools—Adelaide Botanic High School, Fortitude Valley State Secondary College in Brisbane, and Prahran State High in Melbourne—has shed light on designing for student wellbeing. The analysis, informed by Franz’s (2019) Salutogenic framework, provides valuable insights for architects and school leaders interested in both wellbeing and innovation
