Stand Watie Elementary

A complete renovation of the existing 39,072 square foot Stand Watie Elementary creates a contemporary pre-K through 6th grade learning environment. Originally built in 1930, the school provides services for 522 students. A 18,477 square foot two story addition contains ten new classrooms, a special needs classroom, a new Administrative Suite, and a new Media Center.

The center piece of the renovated Stand Watie Elementary School is the relocation of the Media Center from the second floor of the existing building to the ground floor of the addition. The new two story space creates a new traffic flow and establishes a dramatic new focal point for the school. Natural light fills the large volume and provides daylight for the adjacent classrooms.
