  • Three new elementary schools.
  • Ranging from 71,000sf to 75,000sf.
  • Extended learning areas in each building provide for team teaching opportunities.
Interesting Fact: The designs were structured around the community’s vision and included spaces that support varied learning styles, stimulate hands-on project opportunities and align student interests with core content.

As part of the $80M Southwest Building Program, these three new elementary schools provide opportunities for team teaching and project work via large, open extended learning areas.

"Open ELAs provide flexible learning environments designed to advance each and every student in their own unique way. Southwest, with three distributed ELAs per academic cluster, is a perfect example."
