The Gilder Center is open! Students share their first impressions.
A New Home for Math and Science
The Gilder Center, the new home for NMH’s math and science departments, was designed to honor the school’s rich architectural history while also providing a Silicon Valley-like learning environment for students.
NMH broke ground in May 2020 on the $30 million, 42,000-square-foot building, which was designed by Flansburgh Architects of Boston, and the first classes happen in Gilder on Oct. 18, 2021.
Named in honor of the late Richard Gilder ’50, the structure situated between the Rhodes Arts Center and Forslund Gym is full of flexible, multi-use academic spaces that can adapt as educational needs of NMH students change over time. Gilder and his wife, Lois Chiles, donated lead gifts for the Gilder Center and inspired other alumni and families to support the project.
Head of School Brian Hargrove called the Gilder Center, “A space that creates an environment for exploring the unknown and dreaming big.”
