The Jarvis Refectory, made possible by a gift of Charles T. Bauer '38 in honor of retired Headmaster F. Washington Jarvis, is the school's newest building. On the second floor of the adjoining building are the three classrooms of the classics department. The third floor is home to the Alumni and Development Office.
The Charles T. Bauer Science Center features tour state-of-the-art laboratory/classrooms with attendant mini-labs, preparation rooms, storage facilities, and offices. It also includes a 60-seat lecture hall.
The Robert P. and Salua J.A. Smith Arts Center houses the arts program and includes the 300-seat Smith Theater, a well-appointed facility with unobstructed sight lines, fly and trap capabilities, an orchestra pit, and excellent acoustics. The building contains an art studio and classroom space with a variety of media. The music room provides ample space for classes and rehearsals of the School's three singing groups, jazz band, and chamber music ensembles.
The School community gathers frequently for assemblies, known at Roxbury Latin as halls, in Rousmaniere Hall. They often feature a speaker who addressses one of the political, social, or economic issues of the day. Music, drama, and the fine arts are also frequently the focus. Major religious holidays and national occasions are commemorated. The School joins together in prayer and expresses its brotherly solidarity by the custom of passing the peace at the opening of each term and on many other occasions throughout the year.
The Mary Rousmaniere Gordon Wing contains the library, Student Center, and Great Hall, a reception and exhibition room. The Student Center offers the boys a lounge area for relaxing between classes and internet access on 32 computers.
The McNay Wrestling Palaistra has mat space for our three wrestling teams and seating for home matches, as well as an array of cardiovascular equipment. The weight room, open to all students in grades 9-12, contains a full range of universal equipment and free weights.
In 2000, Roxbury Latin dedicated the Albert H. Gordon Field House, the centerpiece of the School's athletic facilities. The double gymnasium accomodates four basketball teams on the winter and seats up to 500 spectators. The facility also hosts a number of school functions, and provides practice area for our spring teams during inclement weather.
