This new school replaces the 1950s era elementary school. The new K-8 configuration helps ease overcrowding at Wheatland Middle School. Classrooms are arranged on two floors, with the younger grades on the first floor. The kindergarten classrooms are paired to share a common area for teacher storage and student bathrooms. Flexible learning spaces, furniture solutions and building-wide WiFi support continually evolving teaching practices. The project, registered for LEED Silver certification, was partly funded by federal grants.
