First Immanuel Lutheran School

21st Century Elements Provide Flexible Learning Models | Cedarburg, WI

First Immanuel Lutheran Church’s 65-year-old elementary school wing became insufficient for adding more students and facilitating 21st century learning.

GROTH Design Group designed a building addition that includes 14 new classrooms grouped around two age-segregated Learning Streets. The open and flexible Learning Streets provide inviting/day-lit group/collaboration spaces which will also be available for after-school church group usage.

Six offices and a reception area create an office suite which also entails reconfiguring the building’s administrative wing.

21st century elements, such as openable glass classroom walls, flexible furnishings, small-group collaboration spaces are flexible to meet the teacher’s desired education model.
