Springfield Ball Charter School is a Pre-K through 8th grade charter school operated by the Ball Foundation with open enrollment for all students in the Springfield School District.

Graham & Hyde designed a 17-classroom addition and added a new multi-purpose room, kitchen, and gymnasium to Ball Charter’s existing 14,000 square foot building. Today the 56,000 square foot building spans across 16 acres and features natural daylighting in classrooms and the cafeteria/multipurpose room, nature trails, and a highly energy efficient two-story classroom wing.
