New Plains Elementary School

Plains Elementary School opened to new students in the Fall of 2015. The school offers flexible classrooms arranged around common spaces or “neighborhoods” that foster a sense of community and promote teacher collaboration. Smaller pull-out spaces, along with the central common space, give more options to teachers and specialists. A ribbon corridor threads its way throughout the building, joining the classroom clusters while bringing clerestory windows to bring daylight deep into the building. The school’s large gymnasium and cafeteria also work as an important public space for the community.
