Our bright and welcoming 21st century school building first opened the doors in 2014, featuring spacious classrooms with 21st century technology (including interactive projectors, tablets, laptops and wi-fi throughout the building). The beautiful architecture is so appropriate for the Port City, from porthole windows to the nautical-themed terrazzo floor and tiles hand-painted by student on the walls. Other features include:
2 spacious art rooms with racks for storing student art in progress
2 music rooms including a performance stage with lighting
Cafeteria with oval tables and booths
Extra-large PreK / K classrooms with bathrooms and cubbies inside the room
Grades 1-3 L-shaped classrooms with lockers in the hallways
Security cameras throughout the interior and exterior of the building
Buzzer system and double secure entrances
This beautiful building provides the educational setting for 120 staff members and 679 students.
There are two playgrounds behind the building. The ages 2-5 playground is fenced in with a riding track around the perimeter. The ages 5-12 playground features multiple, unique structures (there’s even a pirate ship). Both are ADA accessible and have a rubberized surface. Finally, there is a basketball and 4-square area.
Parents and caregivers can relax in shaded seating while watching their little ones play. The playground is open to the public after 3 pm on weekdays and during daylight hours on the weekends.
We employ a responsive classroom approach emphasizing social, emotional and academic growth in a strong and safe school community. Our curriculum is designed in alignment with the common core standards to teach early literacy skills and foundational mathematical concepts. Our educational philosophy is predicated on the belief that all children have individual differences which are best met through high quality teaching and differentiated instruction. We offer an inclusive, full service program including related services and behavior support for all students.
Our Special Education programs include IDC/BEST, ABA and LLD classrooms.
