New contemporary additions for classrooms and cafeteria compliment the historic 1923 Main Building whose interior was renovated and exterior restored. The circa 1923 Pre-K thru 8th grade academy was in need of major renovations and additions to handle expected future growth as well as to meet current district standards.

Additions include a new 28 Classroom Building and a new Cafeteria/Kitchen. Significant site work improves outdoor play areas, access and safety and provide better site circulation and student drop-off.

The tight urban campus was designed for active and passive play, school and after school programming, a teaching garden and interior courtyard for student dining while segregating student drop off, buses and service vehicles. Brick and decorative metal provide architectural binders, figuratively linking new and existing buildings
