The new three-story, 480-seat dining hall at Westminster School now allows the entire school community to participate in family-style lunches several times a week. An engaging and inclusive community is a pillar of Westminster School’s character, which can now be practiced daily over shared meals. With dramatic views of the Farmington River Valley, Armstrong Dining hall features three distinct dining areas, providing a sense of intimacy in the larger setting, but enough space to gather as a full community for speakers, presentations, and other events. Earl Servery, a bright and open space, features a double-sided salad bar, multiple beverage stations, just-in-time prepared grill items, a grain and seed area, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Two outdoor terraces and a fire pit have also helped to quickly make Armstrong a popular social space on campus.
