NEW SHANNON RANCH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

The unique design of this campus maximizes visual control of the outdoor student courtyard and playground while providing ample security from the public due to the “U-shaped” configuration of the buildings surrounding the inner campus.  Visitors are required to pass through the administration building prior to entering the campus, increasing safety and security.  The new facilities have proven to work well for the curriculum and all changes being addressed are with respect to improving school safety, maintenance, energy efficiency, and providing value engineering using in-put from the educators, administrators, and maintenance staff.  This project consists of five single-story building structures and houses 725 K-6 students, including an Administration and Library building, Multi-purpose building with a music classroom and platform for performance and presentations.
