Sanders Elementary School is the District’s first magnet school and emphasizes science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM). Four original buildings were completely renovated, while six new buildings were constructed to create a true 21st century educational facility. The school was designed and constructed for special features including classrooms with wireless technology and space for students to collaborate.
This was a LEED certified project and incorporated the landscape by constructing a boardwalk through the existing wetlands, as well as incorporated new sustainable designs, technology and construction methods into the project. Completed under budget, the school opened its doors in time to start the 2015/16 school year.
