Currently housed in a church annex is Oklahoma’s only tuition-free elementary school and social service agency serving families that are experiencing homelessness. Coming on the scene in 2013, MA+ was tasked to design a new elementary school consisting of 36,000 sf of flexible learning environments. The new elementary school will have classrooms for Pre-K through 5th grade, art and music, special education, and outdoor learning opportunities. The facility also has a secure entry vestibule, offices, meeting rooms, family support spaces, and additional storage rooms for clothing and donations. Other features include a large, centrally located Commons Area, Learning Stairs, and an indoor/outdoor Library. Specialized learning areas include a Maker Space and Kitchen Lab designed to provide students with valuable hands-on education opportunities. Two of the classrooms double as storm shelters during severe weather.
