Early Learning Center and Elementary School Project Receives Citation from American School & University Architectural Portfolio
SCHRADERGROUP (SG) is pleased to announce that our Early Learning Center and Elementary School new facility design for Phoenixville Area School District, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, is the recipient of a Citation for Work in Progress by American School & University Architectural Portfolio, the premier showcase celebrating the best in education design.
One of 127 projects selected to be featured in the Architectural Portfolio issue, the Early Learning Center and Elementary School project was recognized by the jury for its “excellent expression of small learning communities balanced with heart of school,” as well as the “unique focus on food and nutrition as part of learning experience.”
The new 152,000 SF Early Learning Center and Elementary School is designed to support two specific grade structures in a “school within a school” format: K-1 in an Early Learning Center, and 2-5 as an Elementary School. The building design promotes essentially every space in the facility as learning space.
A primary goal for the facility is to create a focus on literacy and learning in a non-standard learning environment. In response, the design places the media and technology center at the core of the facility with all other functions radiating from it.
