Introduction


Previously located in an unfriendly concrete structure, the 650-student, K-8 school now has the space and facilities it long lacked. Situated in a large, park-like setting created through the demolition of the old school, the new building harmonizes with the scale of the surrounding residential neighborhood. The 102,000 square foot school is built into the hillside, decreasing the scale on the side that faces the residential neighborhood. The park and playing fields create the foreground and the neighborhood vistas previously blocked by the old school are restored.
