Collaborating with school districts to create long-term 21st Century educational experiences.



Black FJJTo achieve the goal of providing every child with a high-quality, well-rounded education, school buildings and campuses should be attractive, engaging, safe, and well equipped. This is critical to support 21st Century learning skills, such as collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking, and problem solving.

Quality facilities give teachers and students opportunities to teach, learn and interact in innovative and collaborative ways, resulting in a more productive and rewarding educational experience and long-term success of every student.

To position schools in correctly integrating 21st century educational experiences, Foster, Jacobs & Johnson (FJJ) develops and implements comprehensive facilities plan using its tested stakeholder engagement process.  Our managing partners have over 100 years of combined experience in helping public schools in Minnesota develop and implement complex facility solutions including the integration of existing and emerging classroom technologies.
