Seitz Elementary School is designed for nine classrooms of K-5 students. Other key spaces in the building include an autism unit for the autistic elementary children on post, a gymnasium designed as a FEMA shelter, two music classrooms, an art/science classroom, a cafeteria and a library/media center. Each classroom wing has open collaboration space that is shared between two grades. This is a multi-use space that allows for one-on-one instruction; small and large group instruction; or a place for an entire grade to see a presentation.
The building is graceful in form, bright with natural light and flexible in function. Educators, students and parents enjoy a new sense of collaboration within the school’s shared multi-function spaces.
