The design language of the exterior will complement all of the district’s buildings by incorporating elements of the traditional architecture style in the city. Enclosed outdoor learning areas provide safe and secure spaces for students to explore the great outdoors.
Grades are physically separated into pods in different areas of the school while classrooms are grouped together based on class subject. Moveable marker boards provide hidden storage for children's personal items throughout the day.
Operable walls allow for combined-class lessons and large ELAs provide necessary space for group project work while retaining teacher supervision.
A bright color palette and the theme of the 7 Habits of Happy Kids coordinate with a theme of growth featuring tree-like functional elements throughout the building. Open media center with tiered reading area that allows for class story-time sessions.
