This new one-story elementary school, which sits on 16 acres of land, has a 'U' shaped corridor and a landscaped courtyard. The center area of the building contains a large inviting lobby area which flows directly into the media center, located between the music and art rooms.
All rooms are wired for technology which allows students to explore the arts and access state of the art information at their fingertips. The gym is located adjacent to the cafeteria, with a stage and folding partition wall which can be opened to provide an area for performances.
