Notre Dame of De Pere School

Education Facility for 5-8 | De Pere, WI

After a comprehensive facility study revealed a need for extensive maintenance and repairs of two buildings on the Notre Dame school campus GROTH Design Group was hired to design a new building that merged both the grade school and middle school into one building.

The new facility is a state-of-the-art three-story building for the Notre Dame School Campus. The school provides classroom space for up to 450 elementary and middle school students.

A glass entry spine welcomes students and community from both the west and east entries to the building. It connects all the major parts of the building including the main entry, cafeteria, gym, elevator and learning stair. The design allows for the building to be open for after school events while restricting access to classrooms and office areas. The learning stair provides an open connection to the two floors of elementary school while also providing a collaboration & informal instruction space.
