New Instructional Philosophy
SSOE worked with Richland School District Two to design and develop a new, PK-5 school that directly reflects the district’s latest philosophy for instructional space for an elementary school.
Accommodating 1,200 Students
Designed with an infrastructure and core functions capable of accommodating up to 1,200 students, this new facility incorporates two identical, two-story classroom wings, with flexible learning spaces, separated by core Administrative and Media Center functions. A separate, central wing houses the school’s cafeteria, multi-purpose room, and art and music classrooms, while each floor of each educational wing includes a spacious Collaborative Commons Area.
The sloping site, which features wooded wetlands on two sides, also includes separate parent vehicle drop-off access to an adjacent housing development, as well as separate bus and parent drop-off access points on-site.
