New Elementary Schools

The Need

Our elementary schools range from 102% to 130% core building capacity .


Two new elementary schools are planned for the RainDance and Peakview neighborhoods. The Design Advisory Committee worked with the architects to develop a districtwide prototype that will accommodate 600 students, with a target of 24-25 students per class.

  • 75,000 sq. ft.

  • 600-K-5 student capacity and 64-preschool student capacity

  • 100-student Small Learning Communities (SLCs), stacked two stories, that include student gathering space, technology resources, and teacher workrooms / support offices

  • Centralized innovation commons and maker space

  • Fitness/wellness, music/stage, and cafeteria that are close in proximity to promote afterhour use and to be used as the central social gathering locations for students

  • Teacher workrooms and administrative support offices



  • Additional 600-student capacity per school

  • Relieves capacity challenges at existing schools
