St. Jerome Parish School

Private Catholic K-8 School | Oconomowoc, WI

The design of the school building developed from a study of the site conditions and blends with this rural setting plus the neighboring residential and institutional properties. A natural wetland at the southeast portion of the site and an engineered detention pond enhance onsite water retention and quality. Ball fields for the church and school bring in families from the surrounding communities.The building houses a K-8 two track school with approximately 500 students. The design includes a gym, cafeteria, and library as well as all office and support functions. It is arrayed to maximize solar gain during late autumn, winter, and early spring, while providing enhanced cross ventilation during warm weather.

The masonry building is structured to carry the load of a second story should it be needed in the future.

Recyclable materials including stained concrete floors will reduce the negative environmental impact at the end of the facility’s life.
