Hambright Elementary School
Hambright Elementary School is designed with flexible and adaptable educational environments able to meet the individualized needs of all learners and accommodate small and large group instructional activities. The school is organized into three educational wings which each serve two grade levels and contain classrooms and support spaces organized around a large academic commons which develops and fosters collaborative learning and small group and individual instruction.
Library spaces are located near the main entry and commons to serve all grade levels as well as potential use for public meetings conducted by the school district. Anchoring each end of “Main Street” are the art and music classroom spaces, designed with ample natural daylight.
Public spaces are arranged along “Main Street” which acts as a way-finding element and group gathering/staging space. Administrative offices have visual access to the transportation areas, as well as maintain physical security via the secure vestibule entry system.
The gymnasium and cafeteria are separated via a common stage to allow for flexible programming. Gymnasium functions serve both academic programming as well as community sports events as will the proposed athletic fields.
The facility is adjacent to the Manor Middle School and connected to the community via pedestrian paths. Bus and parent drop off drives are separated.
