21st Century Learning Elements
Onsite replacement of a 1950s school that had multiple buildings connected by open covered sidewalks and classrooms opening directly outside. Operable windows, a low slung wood frame structure and an inadequate original foundation made upgrades impractical, and a full replacement school became the most practical long-term solution. The new school is highly efficient with a Geothermal HVAC system. Cafetorium, library and gym are accessible to the public for after-hours use.
