Bringing Education into the Mix
KSS Headlines
Smart growth and New Urbanism principles are increasingly found in urban, mixed-use developments.

Schools can benefit urban development tremendously for many reasons, both economically and socially. And few can argue students add energy and fun to an atmosphere that can sometimes be too serious.
