GROTH Design Group developed a master plan for a new K-8 school which includes the school, school additions and a potential new church. The architecture of the building is meant to complement the existing church, but give the building a sense of youth through the use of modern design elements.

The building houses a EC-8 two track school with approximately 500 students.  The design includes a gym, library, daycare, school offices and support functions. Additional funding during construction allowed for upgrades to the gymnasium/performance area to include a hardwood sports floor, improved acoustical treatments, theatrical lighting and sound, and more robust branding.

Finally, the project addresses a pressing need for additional office space by converting a number of small, under-utilized spaces into staff offices.
