New Construction
The new preschool through 8th grade school is located in the rapidly growing town of Erie. The 1,000-student school takes advantage of spectacular views to both Longs Peak and the iconic Flatirons to the west, and creates a private “courtyard” to the east which is internally focused and supports a range of outdoor learning activities. The school is organized to create small flexible learning neighborhoods which break down the scale of the school for students and supports the district’s goal of creating separate PK-K, Elementary, and Middle School areas of the building. They all come together in the central commons of the school and feature a large, flexible, multi-purpose dining and performance hall, as well as views to both the mountains to the west and the courtyard to the east.
