History of Facility Development
Past and Present
This place is old, yet it is also very new. These words were uttered during Nishimachi’s fiftieth anniversary celebrations in 1999 and are still true today. Every year brings new faces, new classes, new technology, and even new buildings to our campus, but the vision that our founder, Tané Matsukata, had for her little school remains the same.
The following links take you to reprints of articles from previous Nishimachi publications illustrating how our school has physically grown over the last 28 years and who helped make those changes happen. Starting in 1979, when the school convened an environmental workshop to gather feedback from the community about the future development of the school, to the 2005 Strategic Plan, ideas for growth have been plentiful, but not always feasible. Some of the ideas from 1979 would probably still be found on the wish lists of our current students, thus proving the old adage, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
