W2A Design Group designed this 85,095 SF, new elementary school to accommodate needs of the growing East Penn School District, with future growth in mind. The school is oriented to provide direct accessibility for bus drop-off, parental drop-off and a walking student population; as well as visibility for visitors and deliveries. A total of 108 parking spaces are provided for staff and visitors, in addition to 14 bus spaces and 32 student drop-off spaces.
The plan is efficiently organized and provides flexibility for future increases in student population as well as after-hours community use of limited interior and exterior spaces. Access into the building is monitored and controlled by personnel in the Administration Suite, which is located to provide a secure checkpoint at the main entrance. The building includes 5 classrooms per grade for levels one through five; two additional flexible classrooms (each divisible into two spaces for small group instruction); three Kindergarten Rooms (each with private toilet room and direct access to the secure exterior Kindergarten Play Area); four Special Education Rooms (each with private toilet rooms); Administration and Health Suite, Multipurpose Room (with stage); Cafeteria; Kitchen with support areas; Music and Art Rooms; Library; Computer Room; one Small Group Instruction Room; Faculty Rooms and Supplemental Workroom; Student, Staff and Public accessible Toilet Rooms; as well as various Support, Service, and Storage Spaces. Adjoining classrooms are divided by movable partitions, for flexibility.
