Project Description

Specifications

After the successful completion of a $125M building program in 2003, SHP was hired to design South-Western City Schools new building program.  The $248M phased program included 13 new elementary schools that opened between 2014 and 2015 and renovations to two elementary schools.

Key features of the 13 elementaries :

  • The schools, sized from 400-, 520- and 600-students, deliver on the district’s value of an equitable educational experience for all students through similar floor plans and finishes.
  • Each elementary offers classroom groupings around an ELA space. Four small group rooms also open onto the ELA, providing flexibility for a variety of uses such as tutoring, testing and intervention.  All include terrazzo in the lobbies and a wood floor in the gyms. 
  • Various sized spaces with both fixed and moveable furniture support differentiated instruction including large groups, small groups, individual testing and online work, quiet reading and project-based activity.
  • Flexible, project lab space open to the corridor with operable glass walls, supporting expansion when needed and keeping things quiet when necessary.
