Deer Creek Fourth and Fifth Grade Center
Education, Interior Design
This new state-of-the-art learning environment for Deer Creek Public Schools consists of two new elementary schools in one that will house 1,600 students for this rapidly growing district. The project consists of a 204,000-square-foot school with 78 classrooms, dual administration areas, two media centers, two gymnasiums, one of which is a storm shelter for the entire school, and two cafeterias that double as event centers for the community after hours. The school is divided into four pod-like “neighborhoods” to help with teaching and to promote student collaboration.
