SCHRADERGROUP Receives an Outstanding Design Award in American School + University Magazine
SCHRADERGROUP (SG)’s Phoenixville Area Early Learning Center and Manavon Elementary School project received an Outstanding Design award from American School & University magazine in this Educational Interiors Showcase August issue.
“The nation’s school and university administrators, as well as education architects, turn to American School & University for how-to features, insight, industry exclusive reports and research on the planning, design, construction, retrofit, operations, maintenance, security and management of education facilities. AS&U’s mission is to continue serving as the voice of the industry – not just reporting events, but also helping to shape the rapidly growing and evolving education facilities and business market. AS&U delivers important insight to today’s decision makers.”
The Phoenixville Area Early Learning Center and Manavon Elementary School is located in Phoexniville Area School District in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. The building was opened in 2017 and is a source of pride for the School District.
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. In addition to providing specific spaces for individual, small-, medium- and large-group learning, spaces traditionally used as corridors or hallways are designed to function as connectors and additional learning spaces.
SG takes great pride in the partnership it has with Phoenixville Area School District to provide such innovative learning environments for the students of the community.

SCHRADERGROUP’s Bristol Township School District Projects Featured in Sherwin William’s STIR® Magazine
SCHRADERGROUP (SG)’s Bristol Township School District (BTSD) Brookwood, Mill Creek and Keystone Elementary Schools are featured in Sherwin William’s STIR® magazine (special issue 2018.)
STIR magazine is…
“…the resource that explores the connection between color and cutting-edge design. It examines the many facets of color to help you bring a fresh perspective to your work. STIR® is a print magazine and email newsletter for design professionals.”
In the article, SG’s Managing Partner, David Schrader, describes how the finishes in these newly constructed BTSD elementary schools are used to create an environment that is brighter, lighter, exciting and stimulating to the students using them.
The spaces in these massive buildings are broken up using colors and shapes that act as wayfinding tools for the users of the building. All three schools share the same floor plan but each school has a different unique color palette of its own. The hues chosen for the schools is soft-toned to create a calming effect on children.
SG’s goal for these buildings was to create an inviting and beautiful environment that the District and its children are proud of—and the reception of these learning environments has been extremely positive.
