An undersized elementary school in a small city with two elementary schools of different ages was in desperate need of replacement. Wetlands restrictions on the school’s current and other potential sites made locating a new building especially challenging.
Existing baseball fields will need to be relocated. Extensive traffic studies have been conducted to determine the potential impact of both schools being located together. Utilizing the sloping site, the three-story building will appear to be only two stories when viewed from the front.
After it was determined that the most equitable solution was to construct a new building on a parcel of land adjacent to the City’s other elementary school and split the grade configuration so that the new building would house grades K–2 and the other grades 3–5 to create a campus environment. The building will have distinct community use spaces separated from academic spaces for extra security.
